FUNDRAISERS are needed for one of Taunton’s most popular summer events – the Rotary Club of Taunton’s 50/50 Cycle Ride.

The event, backed by the County Gazette, takes place on June 22 when riders can choose routes from 10km to 56km with a 2.6km route for families at Longrun Meadow.

Riders have the option of donating half their sponsorship money to a charity of their choice, and there are prizes for the individual, school and organisation raising the most money.

Last year, over 25 different charities raised money, including St Margaret’s Somerset Hospice, Musgrove Leukaemic Group, SURE, the League of Friends, Taunton District Scouts and bibic.

This year’s event will include a new addition – a classic car display.
