A charity concert is being held in memory of Rebecca Evans, the young pregnant mother who lost her life in a M4 car crash near Port Talbot.
Rebecca Evans, who worked for Shelter Cymru and was a qualified dance teacher, was dedicated to helping the school children of Carmarthenshire achieve their dreams of getting on the big stage.
In November 2016 Wales Air Ambulance was called to a tragic incident, where Rebecca, eight months pregnant with a baby girl, died and her two-year-old son, Cian, was badly injured.
Wales Air Ambulance flew to the scene, giving Cian lifesaving treatment at the roadside before airlifting him to University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff, to receive the specialist care he needed.
In the days after Christmas last year, the stage school gathered together to sing a fitting tribute to their teacher, and raise funds for the Welsh helicopter charity which saved Cian’s life.
Encore principal, Elin Wyn Murphy, and the group of children, came together to record a rendition of Anfonaf Angel in memory of Rebecca.
The group of children, aged from four to eighteen, raised thousands for the charity, and will now feature in the charity concert in their teacher’s memory.
A charity concert, For Becca, is being held at the Amman Valley Comprehensive School Hall, Ammanford, in aid of Wales Air Ambulance, on June 17, featuring local singers, including Rebecca’s signing team, Encore.
The 27-year-old mother spent three years as part of the team at Encore, a stage school which helped to train young aspiring singers, dancers and actors from across the county.
Mark Stevens, Wales Air Ambulance Fundraising Manager, said: “Encore’s tribute to Rebecca touched every member of our crew and fundraising team, and they raised thousands for WAA. We are so grateful that they chose to support us again in Rebecca’s memory.
“Their support and fundraising will help us send our helicopters to the people of Wales in their hour of need.”
