16 children from central Belarus, still affected by the nuclear catastrophy of 1986, have arrived locally for a month’s respite stay, hosted by the Chernobyl Children’s Life Line (CCLL Bristol Link).
Vice Chairman Pete Naish cycled from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean to raise £4,000 to fund the trip, including £1,566 for entry visas. The charity will continue to fundraise, as they have for the last 18 years, to give children “an opportunity of a life time”.
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.'
