Mynydd i’r Mor—Mountains to the Sea
Join Us On An Adventure!
In September a group of intrepid explorers are travelling from one end of the River Teifi high in the Cambrian Mountains all the way down to Poppit Sands and the Irish Sea.
The trip will take five days (26-30th September), the first being on foot and the rest on the water under the leadership of the Llandysul Paddlers.
There will be a small group on the water on days 2-4 with a larger group, forming a flotilla from Cardigan and on the way down to the sea.
The reason for the trip is to get to know the river and have fun, and also to raise awareness of the DPJ Foundation* and their 24hour emergency phone line; supporting people in the rural community who are experiencing poor mental health.
The project is designed to enable everyone to get involved, both on the water and in a supporting capacity. We are working with communities along the river to raise the profile of the DPJ Foundation and the local support available for each community.
You can find out more about this project on our Facebook page: ‘Mynydd I’r Mor/Mountains to the Sea’, https://en-gb.facebook.com/MiMteifi/ or by calling us on 01239 841236.
