Big C announced as new charity partner for Reuse shops

Big C announced as new charity partner for Reuse shops

From 1 April 2022, Norfolk County Council’s reuse shops are supporting Big C Cancer Charity. A proportion of the proceeds from reuse shops is being donated and will support the charity’s vital role in providing support to anyone affected by cancer in Norfolk.

To date, the reuse shops have raised more than £35,000 for local charities including Norfolk Wildlife Trust and the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

The latest in Norfolk’s growing chain of reuse shops opened on 25 March, at Norwich South recycling centre. The bright, spacious,  purpose-built shop is set to save 100 tonnes of good quality second-hand items from being thrown away each year.

Norfolk’s reuse shops welcome donations of good quality second-hand pieces and sell these on at car boot prices. Helping to give things a new home reduces the amount of unwanted items going to waste and income from sales in the shops helps to offset the cost of providing the recycling centre service.

NEWS Operations Director, Dave Newell, said:

The opening further improves the network available to residents across Norfolk and enhances the opportunity to gain extended value from products that have been discarded by others that would in normal circumstances be destined for disposal. The recent opening of a Reuse Shop at the Norwich North Recycling Centre has been highly successful and we anticipate a similar response from the local residents in respect of this new facility.”

The opening of the Norwich North Reuse shop means that 15 of Norfolk’s network of 20 recycling centres now have a reuse shop: Ashill, Bergh Apton, Caister, Dereham, Heacham, Hempton, King’s Lynn, Mayton Wood, Norwich North, Norwich South, Snetterton, Strumpshaw, Thetford, Wells-next-the-Sea, Wereham.

“We are delighted to have been named as the chosen charity for Reuse. Not only is this fantastic scheme helping to reduce waste and promote recycling, but it is also helping those affected by cancer in the local area receive the support they need.”

We can help to improve your quality of life, physical health, and mental wellbeing.

Some people take to the skies, run, jump, walk, swim and cycle whilst others make tea, bake cakes or shave heads.

What will you do to make a difference?

Two men from Norfolk who found themselves with cancer and having to travel for treatment, vowed local people would have access to the best treatment and support … and in 1980 the Big C Appeal was formed.
