Help us build a new cancer support centre in Norwich.

Big C is repurposing an existing building on Dereham Road in Norwich to provide a new Cancer Support Centre. The Centre will be a calm and bright space away from the hospital environment with a central seating area plus private rooms for one-to-one counselling and complementary therapies, as well as a sensory well-being garden.

Help us create a space that will change lives.

To make this vision a reality, we need you. Every pound donated to the appeal will go directly to the development of this vital new centre to support local people in the heart of the Norwich community.

With your help we have already raised over £400,000 for the building work to commence from early summer 2021.

But we need to continue fundraising … to complete the build and for the fixtures and fittings and all the finishing touches, so that the centre can open early in 2022 and welcome people through the doors.
