Chief Executive, Dr Chris Bushby, reflects, “As I sat there listening to stories of local success and endeavour, in such challenging times for many, I was struck by a sense of our Norfolk community and how together we are stronger. It’s not often I feel the need to quote a philosopher, but an expression attributed to Aristotle seemed apt “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts!”
“I would like to congratulate all the winners and finalists at this year’s Broadland and South Norfolk Business Awards and applaud the organisers for staging an event which demonstrated such diversity, energy, commitment and determination to establish a sustainable economy for our county. We didn’t win our category, but we were in esteemed company, alongside a world-famous organisation in the winner, Lotus, still firmly based in Norfolk and trade technology distributor and loyal Big C supporter, Midwich.
Such resolve made me reflect on our purpose at Big C to provide continuous and sustainable, ‘support for all’ whether that is meeting face to face with families facing the toughest of times, developing new cancer support services, or investing in world-class cancer research on our doorstep. I’m very mindful of the need to always reinforce that anyone affected by cancer can access Big C’s tailored, holistic support to achieve best outcomes and enhance wellbeing.”
Big C’s services are free to everyone, whether that is someone with a cancer diagnosis, their family or loved ones. Or their employer, as managing cancer in the workplace can be sensitive and challenging. We are here to help.
Our portfolio of services includes emotional and practical support, professional counselling, complementary treatments, nutrition programmes, bereavement support and welfare advice in partnership with Citizens’ Advice to help with the financial cost of cancer. We can also provide help for business owners or directors.
Big C’s free support can be accessed in several ways. Visit one of the charity’s Cancer Support Centres in Norwich, Great Yarmouth, King’s Lynn, Wells or Thetford, or call the free telephone support line on 0800 092 7640 (Mon to Fri, 9am to 5pm). Alternatively email on email@example.com.
