This year’s Wales Rally GB 4-7 October will again support charities and good causes across north Wales, taking the total raised in the six years since the World Championship event moved to Flintshire to more than £200,000.
For the third year in succession, Hope House Children’s Hospices – consisting of Ty Gobaith in Conwy and its Oswestry-based Morda sister hospice – have been confirmed as the rally’s Official Charity Partner.
In addition, the event works with local schools, clubs and other volunteer groups to staff the event’s temporary car parks, generated much-needed funds for the local areas hosting the rally.
“We are keen to support the great work carried out by those at Ty Gobaith as much as we possibly can,” explained Dayinsure Wales Rally GB partnership manager Alun Pritchard.
“We will obviously look to raise as much money as possible and will be collecting donations from spectators throughout all four days of the event, but we can also help in other ways, such as giving siblings of Ty Gobaith children the chance to present trophies to the finishers on Sunday.”
Every online ticket purchaser is given the chance to make a voluntary donation to the charity – an organisation which needs to raise as much as £6.3 million every year to support those children in the region with life limiting and life threatening conditions.

WRC fans can enjoy a host of big money discounts and benefits following the launch of an exclusive membership scheme with Spanish company Nano Nino.
The ‘WRC P1’ scheme provides members with a promotional WRC fan card and the opportunity to apply for a pre-paid credit card.
The scheme has been born following confirmation of a multi-year agreement between WRC Promoter and Nano Nino to become the next official supplier to the FIA World Rally Championship.
Ownership of both cards, which carry the distinctive WRC logo, offers big savings when purchasing items with selected championship partners and official WRC outlets.
