“I’m did Ironman Switzerland 70.30 in June 2017 to raise money for Dementia support – The Mase Group.

Over the last 11 years my very close family has been heavily effected by dementia. It really can happen to any of us!

7 hours of pain is nothing compared to what these poor carers and sufferers have to go through every day forever!

I thank you kindly for your contributions. Every penny raised will make a huge difference to providing better times for these sufferers.”
