New Big C Support and Information Centre Opens in Great Yarmouth

New Big C Support and Information Centre Opens in Great Yarmouth

Local cancer charity, Big C, has opened a new support and information centre in Great Yarmouth. The centre was officially opened on Friday 30th July by the Deputy Mayor of Great Yarmouth, Adrian Thompson and local van graffiti artist, Ricky Minns, known as Ruddy Muddy, who created one of his amazing and unique artworks for the occasion.

The new Big C Support and Information Centre in Great Yarmouth is located at 25 Regent Street, NR30 1RL. It has been relocated from Big C’s previous centre in the town which was situated above the charity’s former shop further along Regent Street.

Dr Melanie Pascale, Director of Charitable Operations at Big C said “We are delighted to finally be able to open our new Support and Information Centre in Great Yarmouth. The new ground floor building is easily accessible for all and provides a modern, welcoming space. We will be operating on an appointment basis initially to control numbers within the setting but will review this periodically.”

“We are very pleased to be able to once again offer face-to-face support for our service-users, complemented by ongoing virtual services. This is a fundamental aspect of our charity and one we know our service-users and staff have missed.”

Patients with a cancer diagnosis and their families will be able to meet with Big C’s professional nursing and information support staff for care and conversation, counselling, complementary therapies, welfare advice and family support.

Dr Pascale continued, “We must be aware that Covid is still circulating in the community and our priority is to ensure the safety of patients with a cancer diagnosis, their loved ones, volunteers and staff. Our teams will continue to wear the appropriate PPE and comply fully with infection prevention and control measures. We would respectfully ask anyone attending the centres to continue to wear face coverings, unless exempt on medical grounds and to socially distance.”

The Big C Kings Lynn Support and Information Centre is also relocating and is due to reopen in the coming weeks.

To book a face to face centre appointment, a virtual appointment, to enquire about joining our support groups, or to receive immediate telephone support please call 0800 092 7640.

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.
