Take the Tour Challenge for Alzheimer’s Support

7th August 2020, 11:37am | By Joanna Pazucha |

85-year-old Tony Wills, who lives with dementia in Wiltshire, is cycling 100 miles this summer to raise funds for Alzheimer’s Support and wants YOU to join him.

The former cycling champion will go the distance on his static bike to coincide with the Tour de France. He would love to see others taking to the open road to support the charity which is making such a difference to his life. Tony won his first ever race in 1955, competed across Europe and represented the South West in the Milk Race of 1960.

Could you cycle your own ‘stage’ of the Tour to support Tony and raise vital funds for people living with dementia?
