Every attempt will be made by Bristol & Weston Hospitals Charity and Dave Talbot Ltd to ensure that the events run, however should a cancellation of the event be unavoidable then the participant will be notified at the earliest opportunity. In this event, we will transfer your place to a new date for the event. If we need to move the event, we will still owe payment to many of our suppliers and in some cases we may need to pay twice. This could significantly impact the money raised for Bristol & Weston hospitals and, as such, we respectfully ask that if you can’t make the new date for the event that you kindly donate your registration fee.
