The Mini Mendip

September 6

The Mini Mendip took place on Sunday 6 September and saw over 300 people take to the Somerset countryside and challenging themselves by taking on an adapted version of Weston Hospicecare’s flagship event The Mendip Challenge.

The 10-mile Mini Mendip route started at Weston Cricket Club before travelling along the stunning Brean Down Way 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.

You can still get involved and claim your medal! Take on The Virtual Mini Mendip. Entry into The Virtual Mini Mendip will get you:

  • A map of The Mini Mendip route to walk, or you can walk any 10 mile route in the world within the month of September
  • Exclusive medal to show off your achievements

Or you can become a Mendip Hero and donate to support our event. The Mendip Challenge traditionally brings in over £85,000 every year, supporting local families going through one of the toughest times of their lives. It is the hope of the hospice that The Mini Mendip will help to bridge some of the gap in a year where we have faced unprecedented challenges, and you can be part of it!

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. For the full list of precautions we are implementing, please see our website.

    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.
