Chepstow Racecourse - Friday 10th June
This race day is a fund raising event for Brain Tumour Research in memory of Gwilym Llewellyn who passed away in March 2021 at the age of 51 leaving behind his wife Cerian of 27 years, and his three daughters Shannon, Jessica and Olivia. They want to raise vital awareness of this devasting disease.
Gwilym was an avid cyclist and loved everything about it especially his love of pink cycling accessories. In remembrance of Gwilym today we want see as much pink at the racecourse, whether it be pink socks, tie, dress, flower or anything pink of your choice! A prize goes to the best ’Pink Dressed’ Lady and Gent.
Gwilym enjoyed many days at the races, he is the eldest son of trainer Bernard Llewellyn. Gwilym’s daughter Jess is an amateur jockey, he bought a horse 3 years ago for her to ride and chose pink as the racing colours.
Historically only 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated towards Brain Tumour Research. We hope todays charity race day in memory of Gwilym Llewellyn will encourage people to donate to help find a cure.
