--- Please can you take a moment to vote for Dilys in the top 100 list of inspirational Welsh women.
If she is chosen she will have a statue made of her in Wales. This will be the first statue (one of the first 🤞🏻) to recognise inspirational women that are pioneers and that inspire generations as a role model. She’s created a legacy programme with touch trust and has dedicated her life to helping those with profound disabilities.
I’m changing the link in my bio.... please, please nominate her ... I know how much this will mean to her 🤗
Retired Cardiff-based teacher Dilys Price, known now as “Daredevil Dilys”, made her first parachute jump at the age of 54. She has now completed more than 1,139 jumps for charity, raising tens of thousands of pounds for charitable causes, and currently holds the Guinness
World Record as the Oldest Female Sky Diver. During her time as a teacher, she worked with specialist schools to help children in wheelchairs take part in sports and dance, and in 1996, she also founded The Touch Trust from her kitchen table in Cardiff, which soon
grew into a renowned centre for movement education (called ‘touch therapy’) for people with autism, dementia and profound disabilities.
