Big C’s Big Cuppa

29th January – 9th February 2024

Big Cuppa returns for World Cancer Day 2024 to recognise and raise awareness of the cancer support, research and care happening throughout Norfolk and the World!

We know that there’s no better way to bring people together than with a good cup of tea and a slice of cake, so get the venue set, grab your favourite mug and have a natter all in aid of Big C.




29th January – 9th February 2024


Anywhere! Your home, office, driveway, village hall, online…

Your Big Cuppa can be whatever you want it to be. Hold it at home, the office, on your driveway, at your village hall or online… whatever suits you best! You could have a traditional coffee morning and treat your guests to some homemade goods, have a bake sale in your front garden or mix it up and have a takeaway with friends.

If you are organising a Big Cuppa event at your office, make it a team event! Staff could bring in delicious baked goods, organise a bake off and crown a winner, or have an online tea & cake get together if staff work from home.

Whatever you choose to do simply ask your friends, family or colleagues to make a donation in return, either at your own in person event, on our website here or via text (To donate £5, text BIGC to 70970), to help us continue to support local people affected by cancer.

All you need to do now is simply fill in the form below to receive a Big Cuppa fundraising pack, spread the word and get the kettle boiling for World Cancer Day.
