Big C chosen as EQ Life Burnham Market & Houghton International's official charity
2nd April 2014
Big C is an independent charity, set up in 1980 to improve the lives of those affected by cancer in Norfolk and Waveney. The charity funds ground-breaking research into flighting cancer as well as financing vital life-saving equipment.
"I am so excited that Big C is the EQ Life Burnham Market International and EQ Life Houghton International's Charity of the Year. I attend the events every year anyway so to have the charity that I work for benefit from them is fantastic - I can't think of a better way to spread the word," said Big C Community Fundraiser Rachel Francis.
Through its Support and Information Centres at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, in Regent Street, Great Yarmouth, and Norfolk Street, King's Lynn the charity helps patients and their families through their diagnosis, treatment, life - and sometimes death.
Big C are hosting a children's Easter Egg Hunt at the EQ Life Burnham Market International on Saturday 19th (Easter Saturday), all money raised from the £1 entry fee going to fight cancer in Norfolk and Waveney.
"This is a wonderful charity which makes a real difference to the lives of cancer patients and their families. We are delighted to have them as our Official Charity this year and hope that we can help them raise a significant amount of money," said Event Organiser Alec Lochore.
