Just Beverley Editor Completes 500 Mile Cycle for DFER Challenge

Fantastic news from Julian Minshall, Editor of Just Beverley, who has completed his Cycle for Dementia Friendly East Riding (DFER) Challenge.

When he started the challenge, all in aid of supporting DFER who have faced many problems over the past year of lockdowns with finding ways to raise money, Julian had cycled 60 miles this year. One month later and he has beaten his target of 300 miles, reaching his target of £1,500 and reaching a total of 514 miles, and will be adding to that total today. An amazing achievement. 

To reach his mile target he had to cycle through challenging tracks and in all weathers, even hailstone! Trying to find the motivation on all the cold evenings has been a challenge in itself, and Julian is adamant reaching 500 miles would not have been achievable without the support of everyone behind him. All it takes is for a glance down the donations page and comments to see how the Beverley community has rallied to support Julian, which gave him the extra motivation to dig deeper and cycle those extra miles.

Thank you to everyone who has been behind Julian throughout this challenge, and thank you to anyone who has donated so far. If you haven't donated yet, there's still time! Donate here.

You can see the breakdown of Julian’s mileage and perhaps a few familiar faces who joined in along the way here
