New Big C Shop Opens to Support Local People Affected by Cancer
A new bright and contemporary Big C Charity Shop has opened in the centre of Fakenham supporting those in our county affected by cancer.
Aubrey Jenkins, manager of the new shop said, “As a local charity, we are delighted to join the Fakenham community with our Norwich Street shop. The support of local people is so valuable in the work we do to help those affected by cancer throughout Norfolk and Waveney. We hope they will visit and find some personal treasures amongst our stock collection of vinyl records, clothing, accessories, vintage items of home décor and curiosities.”
Local residents and anyone interested in volunteering opportunities supporting the shop managers, are invited to visit the shop and meet the Big C team. Duties include sorting stock and helping on the tills.
Dr Chris Bushby, CEO of Big C says, “Our shops provide an integral part of our charitable income. On average 20 people are given a cancer diagnosis every day in Norfolk and Waveney and the need for our services are increasing daily. Customers supporting our new Fakenham shop will be directly helping us to continue helping to fund pioneering research programmes and fund cancer fighting equipment, as well as our four support and information centres.”
Big C has 14 other charity shops in towns and communities across Norfolk and Waveney, including a distribution centre, furniture emporium and craft supplies shop at Wymondham. There is also a Bridal Boutique in Timberhill which helps keep the cost down when planning a wedding.
Big C needs donations of stock with which to continue to fill its new shop fittings. If you are having a new year de-clutter at home, the charity would love to receive items including good quality clothing, shoes and accessories, household objects, decorative accessories, books, CDs and bric-a-brac.
