DASH Is a Charity that provides play, respite and life skills opportunities to children and young people with disabilities in Ceredigion.
Like many other charities in the world over the last year, our usual fund raising methods have been very limited. Can you help ?

Many thanks to our regular contributors.A Special thanks to Miriam and Ceri who have walked over 170 miles in April!
Going South from Chirk following the Morda, then Cynllaith through Rhydycroesau, through the beautiful rolling hills to Llansantffraid-ym-Mechian before bearing East towards the carboniferous limestone outcrop at LLanymynech Rocks (a statement or a geological feature?) where we may see Cowslips and Early Purple Orchids.
Then we follow the winding Vyrnwy until it meets the Hafren. South again to glimpse the Castle at Alberbury then returning West and South through relaxing farmlands. At Montgomery, we might pop into the Old Bell Museum to learn about the Castles and the town’s connection to the railway. After that brief stop, we continue to travel South, eventually following the Teme to Knighton.
At Knighton, we can visit the Offa’s dyke association to learn about on the earthworks that stretched the length of the National border. On to Kington, we will eventually follow the Wye through the famous Book town of Hay-on-Wye on to Hay Bluff, along the edge of Brecon Beacons National Park, with stunning view of the surrounding countryside (as long as it’s not raining!). Continuing South, passing the Norman Grosmont and Skenfrith Castles. Ending at the Hafren via the Wye Valley ANOB.
