My story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my fundraising page.

A few mind blowing stats to grab your attention...850,000 people are estimated to be living with dementia in the UK which means that 24.6 MILLION people or 38% of the population know a family member or close friend living with dementia (Source: Alzheimer's Research UK).

Unfortunately in the UK, dementia is the only condition in the top 10 causes of death without a treatment to prevent, cure or even slow down its progress (Source: Alzheimer's Research UK) so I am hoping to raise money for Dementia Forward to try and make even a small difference.

Dementia Forward are a Yorkshire based charity providing a number of services and different avenues of support and information to anyone who is interested in dementia, whether they have received a diagnosis, have concerns about their memory, support someone with memory problems, work in dementia care or just want to know more!

To do so in September, I will be travelling to Tanzania with the aim to summit the tallest free-standing mountain in the world, Mount Kilimanjaro.

We will be trekking for 6 days and nights to reach the summit which is over 19,000 feet!

Thank you for your support...every penny counts.
