Cycling for Dementia

Meet Richard Burt, a cycling enthusiast who Sanctuary Care has proudly sponsored to take on a gruelling challenge for Dementia UK.

Richard Burt with his bicycle ready for the 100 climbs

Inspired by Simon Warren’s famous book ‘100 Greatest British Cycling Climbs’, Richard has set himself a challenge of raising £50,000 for Dementia UK by taking on the UK's most iconic and toughest climbs across England, Wales and Scotland in just 12 days during August – travelling day and night to each climb with his team of volunteers – for a very special reason.

  • 100 climbs
  • 12 days
  • £50,000 for Dementia UK*
  • One reason – his wonderful mum, Peggy, who has had Alzheimer's for the past six years, is currently living with dementia in our Redhill Court Residential Care Home in Birmingham.

Sanctuary Care’s support

As a main sponsor, Sanctuary Care has shown that we are behind Richard and his team throughout their inspirational journey by:

  • Donating £5,000 towards his cycling fundraising mission
  • Providing a professional and branded kit for Richard and his team of volunteers 
  • Supporting with fundraising projects, starting with Time for a Cuppa festivities back in March
  • Spreading the word of his challenge. Sharing is caring, spread the word and help Richard and his team hit £50K
  • Cheering him on!

At Sanctuary Care our number one priority is to keep our residents, their relatives and our staff safe.

With the increasing number of reported cases of Coronavirus in the UK, we have taken the difficult decision to minimise all non-essential visits to our residential and nursing homes until further notice. These include routine visits from loved ones and friends, entertainers, hairdressers, volunteers, work experience students and school parties.

We have not taken this decision lightly and understand this will be upsetting for relatives who want to visit loved ones. We do feel this is the best way to keep our residents safe and is one of many proactive, preventative measures we are taking to stop this infection getting into our homes.

We do hope you understand why we are taking these precautions. Please don’t hesitate to call if you would like to speak to us directly if you have any questions or concerns.
