Jockey Club to donate Grand National Thursday tickets to NHS

The opening day of the 2021 Grand National Festival will be dedicated to the NHS.
The opening day of the 2021 Grand National Festival will be dedicated to the NHS.

The Jockey Club has announced that it will rename the opening day of next year’s Grand National Festival at Aintree in tribute of the NHS, and has pledged 10,000 free tickets to the medical and social care sector.

The day, which was rebranded to “Liverpool’s Day” for this year’s meeting, will be renamed to “Liverpool’s NHS Day” in 12 months time, in honour of the dedicated NHS staff and volunteers across Merseyside who are working tirelessly to care for COVID-19 patients.

The opening day of the meeting is widely thought of as the best day from a racing perspective, and  is headlined by the Grade 1 Aintree Bowl over three miles - which regularly features several protagonists from the previous month’s Cheltenham Gold Cup. Also on the card is the Grade 1 Aintree Hurdle, while the amateur riders get their chance over the National fences in the Foxhunters’ Chase.

Dickon White, Regional Director of Jockey Club Racecourses North West, said: “We’re delighted to donate 10,000 tickets to the NHS and professional carers across Merseyside. We’re also proud to re-name the first day of the 2021 Randox Health Grand National as Liverpool’s NHS Day in recognition of the amazing NHS staff and volunteers. 

“We understand just how hard the NHS and professional carers are working right now and this is our way of showing our gratitude. The ticket process and distribution will begin at the start of next year and we’ll be working with the relevant organisations to ensure those who should benefit from the initiative are included.”

Jan Ledward, Chief Officer at NHS Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group, added that she was delighted with the gesture. She said: “Across local health and care, staff are working tirelessly to keep services running and give people the care they need, often in the face of significant challenges. 

“Whether in GP practices, hospitals, community and mental health services, care homes, social care – or the many other areas that make up our local system – teams are showing incredible resilience and dedication. We’re delighted to see this enormous effort recognised.”

The ticket process and distribution process will commence in January 2021 and further details will follow at the end of 2020.
