Wedmore 40/30

September 27

Wedmore 40/30

The third Wedmore 40/30 event will now take place on Sunday 27 September 2020. The original date on 5 July was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

A superbly beautiful and exciting ride through many Somerset landmarks including the world-famous Cheddar Gorge, the Mendip Hills and the Somerset levels.

The ride has been running each year since 2018 and challenges bike enthusiasts to take on either a 30, 40 or a combined 70-mile course.

There will also be a fun, family-friendly 12-mile course which returns by popular demand.

Weston Hospicecare is working with a group of cycling enthusiasts from Wedmore to organise the event. Money raised through ticket sales will be split between the hospice and St Mary’s Church.

All funds raised through sponsorship and donations will support the care given by the hospice to patients in Weston-super-Mare, North Somerset and Sedgemoor with life-limiting conditions.

There is a range of route lengths you can choose from:

  • 30 miles: ‘Ride the Levels’: you will head south of Wedmore towards Glastonbury and take in views of the beautiful Somerset Levels.
  • 40 miles: ‘The Hill Climber’: ride up the iconic Cheddar Gorge, across the spectacular Mendip Hills and around Chew Valley Lake before venturing back over the Mendips to Wedmore.
  • 70 miles: ‘The Full House’: first you will ride 40 miles across the Mendips and round Chew Valley Lake. Back to Wedmore for a quick refuel and then finish with a slightly flatter 30 miles around the Somerset Levels.
  • 12 miles: ‘Family Fun Ride’: A short and flat route around the Somerset levels; this shorter fun ride is ideal for a range of abilities.

    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.
