Peter Berry, of Friston, has completed a 300-miles, five counties challenge, cycling across Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire, Norfolk and parts of Essex to raise funds for Young Dementia UK

Peter decided to take on the challenge over six days after completing a similar successful cycling charity ride last year.

This time he made it even more interesting by leading his group of supporters on a penny farthing.

Peter, who formerly ran a family business in Suffolk, was diagnosed with early-onset dementia about four years ago, and campaigns to raise awareness of the challenges of living with with the condition.

He has also taken part in a recent Channel 4 documentary called The Restaurant that Makes Mistakes.
