A Suffolk cyclist who proved life can continue with dementia by completing an epic challenge is to give a talk about his experiences.
Peter Berry was diagnosed with dementia aged just 50 – but recently completed a 350 mile ride from Aberystwyth to Aldeburgh in support of Young Dementia UK.
Mr Berry said on completing the challenge: “Dementia is a progressive disease and we all know the outcome, but it’s what we achieve in the meantime that’s important.
“If I can inspire just one person with that message then it’s been worthwhile.”
Mr Berry, who lives in Friston, near Saxmumdham, will be giving a talk with his wife Teresa at the village hall from 7pm on Friday, September 7.

It is hoped visitors to the event will be inspired to sponsor Mr Berry and support them in a “final surge” towards his fundraising total. People can also visit dementiahelpuk.com for information.
