Six-year-old raises over £2,600 in Three Peaks challenge

A six-year-old boy from Abergavenny has raised over £2,600 for charity by scaling three local peaks.

Dylan Carlyon tackled Pen-Y-Fan, Skirrid and Sugarloaf – a combined total of over 6,000ft – on Saturday to raise money for a dedicated hydrotherapy pool for children through Noah’s Ark Appeal.

He took on the mammoth challenge for his little brother Hari, who was diagnosed with hypermobility in his joints at birth which resulted in an inability to crawl and walk. Hari was helped by a course of hydrotherapy in the local hospital, which in turn inspired Dylan to help other children in South Wales.

Parents Ceri and David told us: “Dylan completed the challenge in exactly nine hours, and despite blisters and a fall he was both motivated and determined for the whole day.”
