SODBURY and Yate Business Association (SYBA) raised more than £2,000 for the breast cancer charity BUST in 2016.

Events such as a sponsored walk and a quiz night helped bring in the cash, with a £500 boost coming from Lloyds bank through a matched giving scheme.

BUST is based at Southmead Hospital and raises money for the hospital’s breast care centre, as well as donating equipment to the Avon breast screening service.

Linda Banister, joint chairwoman of SYBA, said: “BUST Bristol is a charity close to our hearts and we’re really pleased to have given our support to them over the last year. 

"The money raised will be used for Southmead’s continuing ground-breaking work in the fight against breast cancer.” 

SYBA meets on the second Monday of every month. Email enquiries@sodburyandyate.biz for details.
