Thatchers Cider is sponsoring Weston Hospicecare’s Men’s March again this year.

The cidermaker from Sandford is backing the sponsored walk for a second year and donating a pint of cider to each participant once they have completed their 10-mile walk.

Hundreds of men are set to take on the challenge on March 14 to raise cash for the hospice which supports people with life-limiting conditions.

Participants will celebrate the end of the walk by watching the finale of the Six Nations on the big screen at Weston's Grand Pier.

Managing director Martin Thatcher said: "Weston Hospicecare captures the hearts and minds of the community, and we're looking forward to being a part of this exciting and exceptionally worthwhile Men's March for a second time.

"What could be better than enjoying a walk through the stunning Somerset countryside, watching the rugby with a pint of cider, while knowing you're helping contribute much-needed funds to the

work of Weston Hospicecare.
