The staff at Bristol-based mutual society, National Friendly, have collectively raised over £10,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, the Society's charity of the year for 2018. This news comes as the Society celebrates its 150th

Employees of National Friendly have engaged in a variety of activities throughout the past year, ranging from themed bake sales, photography competitions and a host of sponsored sporting events. Cystic Fibrosis Trust's Community Fundraiser for the West, Jessica Barnard, commented "Working with National Friendly has honestly been amazing. They've all been so passionate and engaged, and there are so many different ways they've been fundraising or spreading awareness, it's just been wonderful to see."
