Wedmore 40 30

Charity Organisers Determined Not To Let Coronavirus Scupper Event

“We were determined not to let the coronavirus scupper our event” says Wedmore 40/30 organiser

The Wedmore 40/30 charity cycle will go ahead on Sunday 27 September in support of Weston Hospicecare and St Mary’s Church.

The charity ride was originally due to take place on 5 July but, like many of the hospice’s fundraising activities, was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The course starts and finishes at the Post and Wicket in Wedmore and takes riders through the heart of beautiful Somerset landmarks such as Cheddar Gorge, the Mendip Hills and the levels.

Riders can choose from a 30, 40 or a combined 70-mile course to tackle while raising money for Weston Hospicecare. There is also a 12-mile family ride available.

Wedmore 40/30 organiser David Eccles said: “We’ve got a fantastic event planned for all keen cyclists.

“The routes are tailored for those who are elite-level cyclists right the way through to the 12-mile family ride.

“We were determined not to let the coronavirus scupper our event, and we have put plans in place to keep everyone safe.

“Come and join us, have a wonderful ride and raise money for a fabulous cause while you are at it.”

Spaces cost between £4-£35 and sales will be split between the hospice and St. Mary’s Church.

Donations and sponsorship will go to the hospice to support the care given to those with life-limiting conditions.
