Hash run raises stash of cash for Ty Hafan.

What seemed like the bizarre sight of fully grown men wearing red dresses running through the streets of Cardiff has raised a tremendous amount of money for one of South Wales' most important charities.

In July, thousands of Hash House Harriers from around the globe descended on the Welsh capital for Inter Hash 2004.

Hashers are fun runners who follow trails led by fellow hashers known as hares.

The three-day event began with almost 2,000 people taking part in the traditional red dress run to raise funds for charity. This year's event raised about pounds 10,000 for Ty Hafan, the Children's Hospice of Wales, in Sully.

Interhash 2004 organiser Ian Mabberley said everyone was delighted with the amount raised.

He said: 'Ty Hafan is a fantastic cause and it's a great pleasure for us to be able to make this donation.'

Ty Hafan's director of fundraising and marketing, Pam Dodd, said everyone was 'astounded' by the amount.

She said: 'This is amazing, we are absolutely delighted.'
