Big C - Norfolk and Waveney's Local Cancer Charity. For information and fundraising, click on the logo above.

Every year more than 8000 people in Norfolk and Waveney are told the news that they have cancer, and many more are living with the effects every day. Big C began in 1980 and 2020 marks the charity’s 40th birthday. Throughout those years Big C has been dedicated to the fight against cancer and today we help the thousands of people affected by cancer.
During the Covid-19 pandemic we've been able to maintain our support services to help people even though our Support centres were closed. Our services have been delivered via telephone 0800 0927640, online at and through other technologies for one to one support, group meetings and fitness and wellbeing blogs.
Our income has of course suffered over these months and so we hope that by taking part in Norwich 100 you will also be able to support Big C fundraising. Thank you.
