Fundraising for Sid Valley Memory Cafe
Donations cannot currently be made to this page
In memory of Julia Thomson
We provide a friendly, social meeting place to those with memory problems


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Julia, my brother's wife, recently sadly passed away at 64yrs old. She had early onset dementia - it was shocking to see her deteriorate and die so young. Julia loved her biking with Simon, and had left her bike in my garage. I am having it "tarted up" and am using it to raise funds for the Sid Valley Memory Cafe and Sidmouth Admiral Nurse Appeal Charity which was so helpful to Julia, and Simon my brother her carer - offering support to all people with dementia. 

I am traveling up to John O'Groats straight after Bicton CCI2*(end of May) - my last event of the spring season, and will bike solo to Lands End. I plan to wild camp through Scotland, and then stay with various friends plus B&B's on my way down to Lands End. I love a challenge, but not sure my bottom will!!!!
