Welsh charities Ty Hapus and Amser Justin Time are the chosen charities of the Coral Welsh Grand National 2017.
On December 27th, the biggest raceday in Wales will return to Chepstow Racecourse, The Coral Welsh Grand National 2017.
There are seven thrilling jump races on the card including the big race, worth £150,000 in prize money, which is off at 2.50pm.
As well as the racing, there’s plenty of free street entertainment to keep the entire family amused; from a magician, fire breather and stilt walkers to lively music from The Wild Murphys and singing from the Bridgend Male Choir and The Karl Daymond Singing Club.
This year, international opera singers Rebecca Evans and Shân Cothi will be singing the Welsh national anthem before the big race in aid of their chosen charities.
Rebecca who prior to singing worked as a nurse, is a patron of South Wales based charity, Ty Hapus, a unique respite project for people with early onset alzheimers disease and other dementias.
Shân is representing her own charity, Cardiff based Amser Justin Time.
The charity was established after Shân lost her husband, Justin Smith to pancreatic cancer in 2007 and since them has been working relentlessly to raise awareness of the disease and raise funds for pancreatic cancer stem cell research.
“Being a fan of horse racing and having experienced the adrenalin of riding, I am absolutely thrilled to be invited to sing the Welsh national anthem at The Coral Welsh Grand National.”
“Diolch Chepstow and thank you for supporting Amser Justin Time.” – Shân Cothi
