You could win an £18,500 car and help a good cause at the same time in Norfolk’s Big C cancer charity raffle.
Big C, Norfolk’s cancer charity, has launched a raffle to win an £18,500 Subaru XV compact crossover provided by Norwich-based Subaru main dealer Constitution Motors.
Each year 8,000 people are diagnosed with cancer across Norfolk and Waveney. Demand for Big C’s services is rising significantly with visits to the charity’s centres increasing by 17pc from 2015 to 2016.
Funds raised from the raffle for the 2016 Subaru XV 2.0D SE in hyper blue, which will be drawn on December 15 will help the charity continue to grow and provide wide-ranging cancer support in the local community.
Clive Evans, director of income generation and communication at Big C, said: “We are thrilled to be able to offer this amazing Subaru as a prize for our supporters and extend our gratitude to Constitution Motors for their wonderful support.
“We hope to raise as much as £20,000 through the Big C 2017 raffle which means that we can continue to help specialists diagnose and treat different cancers in better ways than ever before, meaning a higher rate of survival and better quality of life for those living with cancer. Income from the raffle will also enable Big C to continue to help discover more ways to treat cancer through funding research at the leading Norwich Research Park.”
Tickets, costing £5, can be bought online at www.big-c.co.uk/car-raffle and are also being sold in Big C shops, Constitution Motors showroom, in Constitution Hill, Norwich, and events.

THE BIG C STORY
In 1980, two men from Norfolk with cancer had to travel to London or Cambridge for treatment, often finding the journey harder than the treatment itself. They vowed that Norfolk and Waveney people would have access to the best treatment and support locally.
More than £25m has been raised since The Big C Appeal began in 1980.
Surgical and diagnostic equipment at Norfolk’s hospitals means more people can be treated locally and new equipment means faster, or less invasive, treatment for a range of cancers. Research at Norwich Research Park has found incredible discoveries into cancer and vital support for those affected by cancer is reaching out to those who need it in the local community.
Big C funds four drop-in support and information centres, used by thousands of people every year affected by cancer. The centres in Gorleston, Great Yarmouth, King’s Lynn and Norwich provide valuable information about diagnosis, treatments, side-effects and recovery. Trained nurses and practitioners there provide emotional help, support and complementary therapies.
