At the Blackbrook Pavilion Sports Centre in Taunton, gym members Katie Baines and Clare Baker (above) got the ball rolling early this week by jumping on to static bikes to ride for 10 hours in aid of the cause.
Other events taking place today include a prize raffle at Paprika in Wellington and a bake-off challenge at the Hankridge Farm Sainsbury’s store in Taunton.
