dash dog steals the show

Last Friday we enjoyed the first days of Autumn from our stall at Peascod Street in Windsor, selling our exclusive merchandise and sending out our purple donation tins to local shops and companies.

We had a very special guest with us on the stall. Carlos the pug belongs to our lovley Debbie who has volunteered for us for over a year. Carlos loves attention and he is very good at drawing in the public. He also looks rather dashing in a Dash baseball cap!

With the fantastic support of our kind local community, we were able to dispatch 30 tins throughout Windsor town centre. We also raised £70 from selling our merchandise. Days such as this not only raise money for us but also raises awareness. Many survivors approach us to share their success stories with us which reminds us of the reason behind our work. 1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men are affected by domestic abuse, we’re here to help.

“focus and hard work pays off” – by Rebecca Webb

I ran my first ever competitive race on Sunday 27th September. Thought I’d keep it simple and go for the Windsor Half Marathon…! J

It was a gorgeous sunny day, the park looked beautiful and the atmosphere was electric. I can really recommend it as a great family day out, even if you don’t fancy the jog around the park yourself!

At the beginning of this Year I was running no more than 4 to 5 miles at a struggle, but it was a personal pledge to myself, within the ‘Well-being’ part of my self-development, to be able to run 10 miles by the end of the year. This just shows what is possible when we really set our minds on something.

I finished in 2:12. Will be looking to smash that next time!!

Just want to say a massive thank you to those of you who got collared by PR Rep: Miss Hood at the conference and kindly sponsored me, raising over £100 for The Dash Charity, helping individuals and families affected by domestic abuse.)

Highlights of the day

  • Meeting Caroline Gel at the start line
  • I saw Chris Evans (and beat him )
  • Everyone was enjoying a Mars Bar after the race!
