East of England Euro MP Richard Howitt raises over �2,000 for Big C cancer charity

Norfolk's Euro MP Richard Howitt has raised over �2,000 for local cancer charity, Big C.

The Labour MEP braved the icy cold of the North Sea on Boxing Day last year, taking a dip at Cromer beach in aid of the charity.

The total funds raised have now reached �2,290, with Richard saying: 'The generosity of my sponsors and support of Big C has been superb.'

Big C chief executive, Daniel Williams, added: 'I'm very grateful to Richard for raising this money and to the North Norfolk Beach Runners, who raised �2,161.43. Thank you!'

The Big C works to ensure that people in the Norfolk and Waveney area receive the best possible cancer treatment and care, including post-treatment support.
