The Big C depot in Allenbrooks Way, Wymondham, is a hive of activity, where thousands of items of every description are collected, sorted and sent out to a network of stores.

A team of dedicated volunteers works tirelessly to prepare the items for resale, raising hundreds of thousands of pounds to help fund the cancer support charity's services.

The Big C was formed in 1981 to buy cancer equipment and support further medical research, and the depot was opened in 2012.

It runs 10 charity shops across Norfolk, including a 'Furniture Emporium' at the depot, which is open Monday to Saturday from 9am to 4.30pm.
