Norfolk and Waveney’s cancer charity, Big C, has announced growth for its retail division, which includes 13 charity shops across the region.

Big C has opened three new shops in the last 18 months, with more openings planned in the year ahead. Several of the existing stores have also been refitted.

The charity’s Diss store opened in early 2018 at the Victoria Retail Centre. The shop is over two floors and features an upstairs community area where several craft groups meet.

Ashley Bunn, Big C’s head of retail, said “I am very proud of this achievement by our staff and volunteers.

I believe the fact that we design every one of our shops as a destination tailored to its location and give it an individual personality is key to our success. We also want to become part of the community.”
