Matt’s fundraiser for Dementia UK

A message from Matt:

Scarily yet also amazingly I have a place on the Dementia UK team for the 2024 London Marathon.  I would really appreciate you giving the time to read the following and helping me if you can.

I have decided to run for Dementia UK in support of my Dad who has been diagnosed with Logopenic Variant Primary Progressive Aphasia which is a rare form of Dementia.

My Dad was a PE teacher for over 20 years and also involved in Suffolk Schools Football for many years, so with him having such a physical lifestyle before he became ill, it feels right to help raise awareness and and as much money as possible in something that will be a challenge to myself in an active way, so this is why I have chosen to do the London Marathon.

It’s going to be a tough journey to train and get through the run but not a touch on the battles my Dad has been through but still a battle none the less. So please help me through this challenge and donate anything you can, whilst helping to raise awareness and funds for Dementia UK- all money raised goes towards this special charity.
