A MAJOR event raising event to raise money for the Big C charity raised more than �1,500 - and the money is still rolling in.

The first Ladies Knight was launched at the Burrage Centre, Gorleston on March 6, with the lighting of a candle to remember everyone who had lost family and friends to cancer.

Two hundred people attended and 20 exhibitors, from Boots store to a session by reflexologist Julie Beales, helped make the evening a night with a difference.

There were makeovers to get the “10 years younger” effect, hot stones massage, self defence, and ear candling among others designed to make people feel better, fitter and safer.

Big C is Norfolk and Waveney's own cancer charity which has pledged to raise over �1m to improve the lives of local people affected by cancer, money which will be spent on equipment for hospitals.
