Alveston Flower Show is open to everybody, you don't have to live in Alveston to take part. There are plenty of classes to choose from. This year profits from the Show are going to the Friends of Bristol Eye Hospital.
The Alveston Singers thank everyone who attended their summer concerts for their generosity. The retiring collections from the two concerts totalled £863 which will be shared between their two chosen charities for 2014: Parkinson's UK and Hope for Tomorrow (Mobile Chemotherapy Units).
Hundreds of employees from waste management firm, SITA UK, have taken part in a 2,400 mile, UK cross-country cycle tour to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The winding route, designed to include as many of SITA UK’s facilities as possible, made the journey almost three times as long as the traditional Land’s End to John O’ Groats cycle route of 874 miles.
SITA UK manages the collection of waste and recycling on behalf of South Gloucestershire Council and operates four Sort It! recycling centres. CEO David Palmer-Jones said: 'Unfortunately, cancer is something that affects us all, which is why we have chosen to give something back by attempting to raise enough money to fund a Macmillan nurse for a whole year.'
