Archant, which owns the Mercury, has agreed to match-fund the total, adding a further £390 to the total.

Vicky Angear, leader of the Mercury team, said: “We are so grateful to Archant for helping us to donate even more money to Weston Hospicecare.

“The charity does a fantastic job caring for people with life-limiting conditions and supporting their families.

“We are delighted to be able to support the hospice so it can help even more families.”

The Mendip Challenge is taking place on June 2 this year and people can sign up to take part in the 10, 20 or 30-mile route at www.westonhospicecare.org.uk/mendip
