Jarrold has donated £2,000 to Big C’s Nearer to Home Appeal towards the local cancer charity’s new Norwich support centre, which is due to open in early 2022. The money was raised from the retailer’s online sale, the BIG Clear Out for Cancer, which launched in February.
Jarrold previously donated £10,000 in 2019 to launch the Nearer to Home Appeal.
Carole Slaughter, Head of Marketing, Fundraising and Communications at Big C, said, “An enormous thank you to Jarrold for choosing Big C’s new Norwich centre as the beneficiary of their BIG Clear Out for Cancer sale and their ongoing support. It was such a fun initiative which echoed the mood of the nation as we’ve been clearing out our closets in lockdown and thank you also to everyone who bought something. The money will go a long way to helping more people access cancer support in a new state-of-the-art facility for Norwich and Norfolk. We hope building work will start in a few weeks’ time, but we still need to raise further funds for the build and running costs of the new centre. Every donation we receive counts.”
John Adams, General Manager & Senior Trading Director at Jarrold said, “We were delighted to support our friends at Big C with the BIG C Clear Out campaign. We’ve had a fantastic reaction from our customers who we know love a fashion bargain, especially when they can support a good cause and we’ve managed to make room instore for this season’s collections.”
