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

It was originally going to take place on 5 July and was postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The course starts and finishes at the Post and Wicket in Wedmore. Cyclists will visit beautiful Somerset landmarks such as Cheddar Gorge, the Mendip Hills and the Somerset levels so it truly is a stunning ride.

Riders can choose from a 12-mile family ride, a 30-mile route, a 40-mile route and a combined 70-mile course.

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

“There is a route option for everyone so be sure to come and have a wonderful ride.

“We’re determined not to let the coronavirus scupper our event. We have had plans approved by the authorities to keep everyone safe.

“Come and have a wonderful ride and raise money for charity.”

It cost between £4-£35 to take part. And, sales will go to the hospice and St. Mary’s Church.

    Reclaim Gift Aid

    Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Weston Hospicecare to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Weston Hospicecare we can claim back 25p from the government.

    By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Weston Hospicecare to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Weston Hospicecare will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

    What is Gift Aid?

    Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Weston Hospicecare receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

    All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

    The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
