During 2017/2018 Norfolk’s Cancer Charity Big C were Bespak’s Charity of the Year. In 1980, two young men from Norfolk found themselves with cancer and having to travel to London or Cambridge for treatment, often finding this journey harder than the treatment itself. They vowed the people of Norfolk & Waveney would have access to the best treatment and support in their local areas.
Thirty-five years on and this is being realised more than ever; with over £25 million being raised.
During the 12 months Bespak employees raised over £18,500.
