Big C is a local, proudly independent, cancer charity formed in 1980 by two young Norfolk men. Having had to travel to London for their own cancer treatment they were determined that people in Norfolk & Waveney should have access to the very best treatment and care locally. With the help of the local community the charity has raised more than £35 million since its foundation. All the funds Big C spends are used to benefit local people; either by providing money for care and treatment; or by funding internationally acclaimed research through local investment in significant project and equipment grants.

Big C’s vision is to enable Norfolk and Waveney to be a centre of excellence for the provision of cancer services, and to contribute to the international reputation for excellence in cancer research locally.
