Cycling for Dementia Friendly East Yorkshire (DFER).

Chairman for the Beverley Chamber of Trade, Julian Minshall, has set himself a challenge to cycle a minimum of 300 miles in  April to raise money for Dementia Friendly East Riding (DFER).

Charities such as DFER have faced many problems during lockdown with finding ways to raise money, but as we come out of
lockdown we are being encouraged to get more fresh air and put our wellbeing as a top priority.

Up to the middle of March Julian had cycled around 60 miles, in 2019 he cycled a total distance of 669 miles, averaging out
at 56 miles per month. 

He has always found ways to do his bit for the Beverley community and help others less able than himself, and is determined to complete this challenge while raising money and awareness of dementia. 

Having chosen to support DFER, he commented: “Almost everyone knows someone who is living with Dementia, it is a terrible condition. To raise awareness while completing the challenge is massively important to me".

Mandy Aitken Trustee said “2020 was been a challenging year for DFER and many other charities as their fundraising efforts and ability to deliver projects to the community have been limited. We are so appreciative of efforts like Julian’s to help keep the charity going. Best of luck on your challenge!”

If you are able to do so, get behind Julian, donate and support DFER Julian will continue to cycle throughout April to cover as many miles as he can.
