Ian Odgers, who has collected thousands of pounds from marathons he has run and events he has put on, was moved by hearing a radio interview about a new book on dementia.

He said: "The woman being interviewed was Wendy Mitchell and she had just written a book called Somebody I Used To Know.

You may also want to watch:

"She described what it was like to be diagnosed with dementia and the effect it had on her life and that of her friends and family. I got the book and it blew me away."

Mr Odgers added: "I can't do much to change the world but maybe I can try and do a little something."

The 80s party night is at the Railway Tavern on August 10, 7.30pm-late. Fancy dress optional.

Tickets £5. Contact: 07540 792050. Email: theegohaslanded@aol.com.
