Cycling event

Are you ready to take the leap and jump for Big C?

There’s nothing quite like the challenge of jumping out of a plane on a tandem skydive, and the exhilaration you’ll feel as you free-fall through the sky!

During the six minutes or so under the parachute, you will enjoy breath-taking and unique views of the local area and beyond.

A Big C runner in the Blickling Half Marathon

Autumn Blickling Half Marathon

20 October

The Autumn Blickling Half Marathon is an event not to be missed! The route will take you through some of the most scenic parts of the North Norfolk countryside.

A sell out event every year, this half marathon promises to be a race to remember.

“I’m so proud of myself and our team of poos! None of us are runners, and yet somehow, knowing that every step we took and every pound raised was going to help people in the same situation as my dad had been, made me keep going. It was an incredible experience.”



Could host and facilitate a support group allowing people affected by cancer to share experiences and support each other.


Could provide a complementary therapy course to ease some of the physical psychological and emotional side effects of life with cancer.


Could enable Big C to provide weekly outreach support at a part time hub important to more rural communities.
