َA new Big C store has opened its doors in the centre of Fakenham by a charity to support the local people affacted by cancer. The store is expected to receive customers and supporters.
Aubrey Jenkins manager of the new Big C shop, based on Norwich Street said: “As a local charity, we are delighted to join the Fakenham community with our shop.
“The support of local people is so valuable in the work we do to help those affected by cancer throughout Norfolk and Waveney. We hope they will visit and find some personal treasures amongst our stock collection of vinyl records, clothing, accessories, vintage items of home decor and curiosities.”
Chris Bushby, chief executive, said: “Our shops provide an integral part of our charitable income.
“On average 20 people are given a cancer diagnosis every day in Norfolk and Waveney and the need for our services are increasing daily. Customers supporting our new Fakenham shop will be directly helping us to continue helping to fund pioneering research programmes and fund cancer fighting equipment, as well as our four support and information centres.”
The store is still new and needs donations of stock to continue to fill its new shop, including good quality clothing, shoes and accessories, household objects, decorative accessories, books, CDs and bric-a-brac.
