Cycling Challenge for DFER a success

Julian Minshall, Chairman of BCoT has completed his Cycle for Dementia Friendly East Riding (DFER) Challenge.

Julian had cycled 60 miles this year. One month later and he has beaten his target of 300 miles, raised more than his target of £1,500 and clocked up a total of 543 miles,  An amazing achievement. 

Having cycled through all weathers, even hailstone! Trying to find the motivation on all the cold evenings has been a challenge in itself, and Julian is adamant reaching 500 miles would not have been achievable without the support of everyone behind him. 

Have a glance down the donations page and comments to see how the Beverley community has rallied to support Julian, which gave him the extra motivation to dig deeper and cycle those extra miles.

Thank you to everyone who has been behind Julian throughout this challenge, and thank you to anyone who has donated so far. If you haven't donated yet, there's still time! Donate here.

You can see the breakdown of Julian’s mileage and perhaps a few familiar faces who joined in along the way here.
