Celebrate Big C-hinese New Year

A handful of tickets are still available for the Chinese New Year civic charity buffet, which will raise money for Big C.
 
The event is to be held on 30 January at the Riverside Chinese Buffet Restaurant, Wherry Road, Riverside, and will include an auction, a tombola and a Chinese dragon dance. It starts at 6.30pm.
 
Items to be auctioned include a tour of Norwich’s historic and rarely opened Great Hospital, a tour round Parliament for two, a Joules hamper, free tickets to Cinema City, tea and cakes with the Lord Mayor, and four tickets to the Gressenhall museum.
 
Tickets must be bought by 16 January and are £15 per person. They can be bought from Big C. Please email Robbie.Mcknight@big-c.co.uk, call 01603 619900 or drop into the office at 10a Castle Meadow.
 
Big C was chosen as this year’s civic charity by Lord Mayor of Norwich Jenny Lay and Sheriff Chris Higgins.

It is a shame the man preferred not to donate to breast cancer when he understands what cancer can do to a person and their family. After all, aren't we all in the same boat. At Big C though we don't differentiate between cancers. We fund leading research into prostate cancer as well as breast screening units, skin cancer surgical equipment and support for people with any kind of cancer, across Norfolk and Waveney. So donating to Big C is donating to all cancers.

I encountered a man in a check-out line one day a few years back, and the cashier asked him if he'd like to donate to the breast cancer charity. He said no with a stern look on his face. He continued with the remark that he had prostate cancer and the breast cancer foundation wouldn't help him one bit. Yikes, that's a bummer. It could make a person bitter. Especially if these charities and foundations are supposedly for those afflicted with cancer.
