The Mini Mendip

September 6

The Mini Mendip

Take to the Somerset countryside and challenge yourself by taking on an adapted version of Weston Hospicecare’s flagship event The Mendip Challenge on Sunday 6 September.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are limiting the numbers to 400 participants so make sure to sign up today! The Mini Mendip will start at Weston Cricket Club before taking you along the stunning Brean Down Way on a 10-mile hike to the turnaround point in Brean, before heading back to the cricket club via the Old Church of St Nicholas with breath-taking views across Weston-super-Mare and The Mendip Hills.

It costs £20 for adults and £12.50 for children to take part and your entry fee includes:

  • Entry to The Mini Mendip on Sunday 6 September 2020
  • Training programme to help you prepare for the walk
  • Free re-usable water bottle and filling station at the start
  • Finisher’s medal to show off your achievements

After signing up, you and your bubble will be given a starting time ranging from 7.30am until roughly 2pm. We’re asking bubble groups to walk together and you must socially distance from others.

To register on the day, you’ll be sent a unique QR code which a member of the Weston Hospicecare team will scan before you start and again when you finish. You can show this on a mobile phone or by printing off and bringing with you on the day!

If at any point within two weeks of the event you are displaying signs of the coronavirus or you have been diagnosed with it, you must not participate. Please email grace.dibden@westonhospicecare.org.uk if this is the case. Please note that there will not be refreshments along the route, but you will be able to purchase food and drink from the Cricket Club. All participants under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a participating adult from the same household at all times.

Weston Hospicecare has had official sign-off for The Mini Mendip from North Somerset Council, independent Health and Safety bodies, and insurers. Thorough COVID-19 secure risk assessments have been undertaken as we take the safety of our participants, volunteers and staff very seriously.

    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, at no extra cost to you.

    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.
