A DOWNEND woman is urging runners to support breast cancer charity BUST by joining its team of runners in the Bristol 10K on Sunday May 13.

BUST - Breast Cancer Unit Support Trust - was formed in 1991 by patients and is now the major funding partner for the Bristol Breast Care Centre at Southmead Hospital.

Its chairwoman, Jenny Wookey, hopes to enlist as many recruits as possible to boost funds to buy advanced equipment before it is available through NHS funding.

The race is its biggest annual fundraising initiative, and the charity is seeking participants who are willing to run or walk the route for the charity.

Jenny, who was diagnosed with breast cancer 15 years ago, said: "The advances in treatment over the past decade have been tremendous. However, we still need to do more.So, if you have ever thought about entering Bristol’s 10K why not make 2018 the year? ."

Those running in the charity’s team will get a reduced entrance fee of £27 in return for committing to raise money.
