Six-year-old trekking Welsh peaks to raise money

Dylan Carlyon trekked up three peaks in Wales to raise money for a hydrotherapy pool for children that his brother needed


A 6-year-old boy from Abergavenny has trekked up three peaks in Wales to raise money for the Noah’s Ark Appeal.


Dylan Carlyon was inspired to take on the challenge after his brother Hari used hydrotherapy treatment to overcome hyper-mobility in his joints. Hari was able to take his first steps after the therapy.

Dylan then found out that the Noah’s Ark Appeal was trying to raise money for the cause.

Dylan’s three challenges were Skirrid Mountain, Pen-y-fan and Sugarloaf – each over 1,500ft high. 

“We were all very tired but elated. Dylan was in very high spirits afterwards,” said dad David, reports the BBC. “He acquired two blisters on his journey but he was really pleased with himself.”

Dylan has managed to raise a whopping £2,701 so far – well done!
