Donate to my chosen charity Alzheimer’s Society
Every little bit will help towards ground breaking research.
My father has had dementia for about 5 years, which has basically been poor memory but recently (August 2019) took a terrible turn for the worst. As my DAD, the most amazing placid man you could have ever wished to meet, turned very aggressive and abusive towards his loved one’s. This awful disease began to rapidly take over my dad.

Ultra Challenge May 2020
I am looking to do a big Charity event to help raise funds and awarness of Dementia, I am looking into doing the the Ultra 100 next year with my son James.
The original Ultra Challenge – a classic Capital to Coast route that’s 66% off road. Richmond start, then along the Thames Path and on to the North Downs through beautiful Surrey and Sussex countryside – with a half way stop at Turners Hill. The steep climb up and over the South Downs finally unveils the Brighton coastline – with the welcome finish line & celebration at the racecourse.
Full Challenge 100km

London Marathon 2019
I’ve joined the Dementia Revolution; the official Charity Team of the Virgin Money London Marathon 2019. My dad has now been diagnosed with dementia so this is now personal.
In April I will run 26.2 miles through the streets of London; because research can end dementia and taking on this challenge for the Dementia Revolution is a unique opportunity to power the most ambitious dementia research endeavour the UK has ever seen.
Dementia is the biggest health threat facing society and there are currently no effective treatments to slow, prevent or cure it.
But a revolution is growing – on the streets and in the laboratories. Scientists are gaining on dementia, making discoveries to change lives. But they can’t do it alone. We must bring dementia out of the shadows, so that people living with this devastating condition can lead more fulfilling lives.
Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer’s Research UK are joining forces for a year-long campaign to power ground-breaking dementia research, overthrow old attitudes and lead the charge towards a cure.
We all must make a stand; sponsor me today to support ground-breaking dementia research.
Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to the Dementia Revolution charities; Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer’s Research UK.
Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity’s behalf where the donor is eligible for this.
I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
