Good luck to Nick Faddes who sets off today on his ride against dementia!
Continuing our theme of sponsorship and two wheels, TradeHelp are proud to be supporting Nick Faddes in his challenge to raise money for Alzheimer’s Society.
Nick’s journey has started today where he will pass through the picturesque Kent countryside, cross the Channel and continue through small villages and medieval market towns of Northern France before reaching the finish line 300 miles later at the iconic Eiffel Tower.
Dementia is caused when the brain is damaged by diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease or a series of strokes. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia, but not the only one. 850,000 people are estimated to be living with dementia in the UK.
Globally, the numbers of people living with dementia will increase from 50m in 2017 to 152m in 2050, a 204% increase.
Every penny raised for the Alzheimer’s society is spent directly on improving the lives of people affected. Nick has already reached his target of raising £1550, but if you would like to help us support the society then please go to Nick’s Just Giving page to donate.
All the best Nick and we look forward to hearing your updates!
