TAUNTON'S Toad Trail is coming to an end after bringing a summer of fun to residents.

Taunton Toad Trail was organised to coincide with the 60 anniversary this year of The League of Friends of Musgrove Park Hospital.

Profits from the trail will be used to fund improvements at the Bracken Birthing Centre at Musgrove, a new birthing pool and improved facilities at the hospital.

There are 22 to see around the town - but the trail ends on September 13 after being launched in July.

After that, there will be an auction at Hestercombe on October 13 from 3pm where they will be sold off, except for one which is up for grabs as a prize.

Peter Renshaw, organiser, said: "Many people have commented on how much they have enjoyed doing the trail which also brought visitors to Taunton.

"There is still the opportunity to win Gregory the Willow Toad by buying a raffle ticket for a £1 which will continue to be on sale up to the auction."

All money raised from the toad trail will go towards refurbishing Bracken Birthing Centre at Musgrove Park Hospital and donations can be sent to the Treasurer, League of Friends, Church Barns, Hockworthy, Wellington TA21 0NW; cheques to League of Friends Musgrove Park Hospital or donate online ref BRACKEN to sort code 30-98-45 account number 00890237.
