Wear Pink This Friday To Support BUST

Bristol Flyers are asking fans to wear pink to this Friday’s game against Leicester Riders to help raise funds for the Breast Cancer Unit Support Trust at Southmead hospital (BUST).

The annual event, which is organised by former breast cancer sufferer and wife of Bristol Flyers non-executive director Martin King raised £321 last season and this year, we’re looking to top that figure with the help of the #FlyersFamily.

"It was an amazing evening raising funds and awareness of our local Breast Cancer Charity at the Newcastle Eagles game last season,” said Liz King.

"The Bristol Breast Care Centre is full of wonderful caring professionals and I'm grateful that Bristol Sport has helped me to organise such a wonderful event.”

BUST was formed in 1991 by Frenchay Hospital patients Pamela Corrigan, Carol Thomas and Margaret Twiggs, when they learned from Consultant Surgeon, Mr Simon Cawthorn that his team needed a £20,000 ultra-sound scanner. The trio raised the money within two years and their impressive achievement led to the creation of the hospital’s specialist Breast Care Centre with its One Stop Clinic.

Over 22,000 patients per year attend the Bristol Breast Care Centre, including a significant number of male patients. BUST supports the important work of this excellent team by raising money to support innovation and purchase new technology, such as state-of-the-art scanners, before it is available through the NHS. BUST has raised more than £1,175,000 and every penny has been spent supporting patient care.

Breast cancer kills 12,000 people a year in the UK, stealing them away from loved ones.
