Trusts and Foundations

We offer our very grateful thanks to the charitable trusts and foundations who support the work of Big C. These generous collaborations and partnerships help enable us to reach and support 1 in every 3 people diagnosed across the region. If you are a trustee or connected to a trust, and would like to help then please get in touch.

We would like to thank the following grant giving organisations for supporting Big C:

Alan Boswell, Garfield Weston, Geoffrey Watling Foundation, Norwich Consolidated Charities, Paul Bassham Charitable Trust, Peter Sowerby Foundation, Ridley Godfrey Foundation, Simon Gibson Charitable Trust, Sport England (National Lottery funding), The Tanyard Trust and Yorkshire Building Society

How trusts & foundations support our work

The grant funding we receive helps enable the delivery of Big C’s Information & Support services. It helps enable our cancer awareness programmes aiding early detection through education. It helps ensure we can reach and provide for those in rural communities or those who are more disadvantaged or marginalised.  Grant support is also vital to helping ensure the long-term sustainability of the charity.

Working together in partnership

Big C has a robust structure in place to ensure we are adept at capturing meaningful data to demonstrate impact and validity of projects. 

We welcome opportunities to show charitable trusts just how their support is helping through regular updates and site visits. It’s a collaboration we want to share so trusts and foundations can see for themselves the full impact their grant is making.

“As part of our commitment to supporting charities where the Society’s colleagues and members live and work, we were delighted to help Big C. It’s clear to see the valuable work they do and we hope the donation will help make a difference to all those who come in contact with the service.”
