Staff at East Anglian accountancy firm, Aston Shaw, which has its head office in Norwich, have announced they will be fundraising for Norfolk and Waveney cancer charity, Big C, over the next 12 months.
Big C was chosen following a staff vote from four local charities and follows Aston Shaw’s support for EACH over the past three years.
Staff at Aston Shaw had already run a Big C biscuit appeal for a charity dress-down day. The biscuits were delivered to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) Big C Centre for visitors to enjoy. The team will continue to fundraise via ‘Casual Fridays’ and hope to take on some sporting challenges.
Charlie Maylin, marketing executive at Aston Shaw said, “Big C is a fantastic local charity and we can’t wait to start fundraising through a variety of events and activities. As a team we feel it is so worthwhile to be contributing towards ground-breaking cancer research, state of the art equipment and Big C’s support and information centres across Norfolk.
Dr Chris Bushby, Chief Executive at Big C, said, “Our grateful thanks to Aston Shaw for voting for us as their named charity. It is this kind of support which makes such a significant difference to those in our community affected by cancer.
