What others say
“Well, my Land’s End to John O’Groats challenge is done. Fundraising pretty much complete and my life will never quite be the same again. What an epic journey with some ordinary people each doing an extraordinary thing.” – Trevor from Essex, 59
“My experience of cycling from London to Paris was life-changing. It took me from being a couch potato to super fit. It focused me on the positive things in life and really got me out of the mind-set that I was in.” - Phil from Liverpool, 48
How you money helps
Your cycle could make a life-changing impact for people affected by dementia:
- £200 could speed up the search for an effective treatment for vascular dementia by paying for a year’s worth of clinical trial drugs.
- £590 could provide a space for people worried about dementia to connect, tell their stories and support each other by funding our online community Talking Point for a weekend.
- £1,040 could support people with dementia to keep doing the activities they love and try new things by funding a Side by Side service for a week. Volunteers support people with dementia to do whatever they enjoy, from going to a football match to visiting a café for lunch.
