Bishopston Matters

The recent Christmas Gospel concert with the Renewal choir at St Bons was huge success and they managed to raise a whopping £1178 for Bristol Youth and Community Action (BYCA). BYCA is a programme funded from the Bristol High Sheriff’s Fund. BYCA supports young people in Bristol aged 8-12 years with a huge range of diversionary and skills- and confidence-building activities for children and young people living in disadvantaged areas of Bristol. It is designed to offer opportunities, positive experiences and reduce risk of involvement in anti-social behaviour.
