Steph Williams was keen to fundraise for Football in the Community. Her husband was sadly diagnosed with dementia and attends their Working Age Dementia sports session. It’s held weekly on Wednesdays at FITC-owned Portland Centre. Steph saw first-hand what a positive difference the sessions made and was impressed by the help, understanding and enthusiasm of the coaches.
Steph wanted to support the sustainability of the Working Age Dementia group, so she signed up for the 50 mile Cycle Live event around Nottingham at the end of June. She designed posters to raise awareness of the event and with the help of FITC partner, CodePrint, the posters were printed.
After an early start, Steph completed the 50 mile ride at 5.30pm, despite coming off her bike. She dusted herself off and confidently completed the ride to receive her medal (see photograph).
Steph raised a fantastic total of over £375 for the Working Age Dementia project and fully deserves her place in our Knights of Notts fundraising hall of fame!
Steph says, “I’m really thankful to everyone who supported me. I know how much Ken looks forward to going and doing different sports. He always enjoys it and likes the coaches who run the session.”
