The Great Somerset Cycle

St Margaret’s Hospice Care has today made the decision to postpone the Great Somerset Cycle until later in the year.

We will be working hard in the coming weeks to find a suitable alternative date and share this information as soon as it is safe to go ahead. You can learn more about our response to the current Coronavirus situation HERE, where we will update information regularly.
