Two Brecon youngsters have scooped top prizes at the first charity raffle of this year’s Six Nations Championships.

Imogen Thompson-Richards and Freddie Bowen were announced as the the lucky recipients of two rugby jerseys for the opening fixtures of the tournament.

The raffle, ran by Brecon’s own Brian and Lorna Keylock in aid of Cancer Research Wales, has raised an incredible £1500 for charity after just the first two games.

Both youngsters proved that you’ve got to be in it to win it and were delighted to win their jerseys.

Young Imogen has proven that a lucky streak might be in the family, as her older sister won a shirt at the same raffle some 17 years ago.

Brian and Lorna will be back in Brecon town centre this coming Friday and Saturday morning to sell more raffle tickets from their TARDIS.

Up for grabs for Wales’ upcoming clash with England is another jersey and signed photo for first and second place.

Brian said: “If Wales play with the same strength that this community plays then nothing will stop them winning.

“Thank you so much for your support and we will see back in Brecon this weekend.”
