Jenny Wookey, Trustee of BUST said: “We are delighted to receive this donation of £500 from The Southern Co-operative store, which will aid diagnosis and treatment of the 22,000 patients , both male and female , who attend the Southmead Hospital for treatment each year. BUST supports Bristol’s only Breast Care Centre by purchasing the most advanced medical equipment available.”

As a new feature for this store, The Southern Co-operative has also introduced a selection of locally sourced products from their Local Flavours range, bringing the county’s quality foods to customers locally. From farm fresh eggs and artisan cheeses to locally brewed ales and cider, there’s plenty to sample from the West Country in The Southern Co-operative’s new store.

The community food store will be open from 6am until 11pm seven days a week with a free-to-use ATM and nearby car parking.

Kelly Shaw, Store Manager for The Southern Co-operative store on Gloucester Road, Bristol said: “It has been fantastic to celebrate the opening of our new store with our local community and BUST – the Bristol based charity who supports the city’s breast cancer care centre. Community is something which is really important to The Southern Co-operative and my colleagues and I can’t wait to really engage with the good causes and community groups in our local area.”
