Wymondham woman’s auction and trek for cancer charity
A Norfolk County Council employee will be holding an auction in a city centre pub to raise money for a trek she is doing in aid of a local cancer charity.
Stevie Spencer, pictured, of Wymondham, is organising an auction at the Hog In Armour, in Charing Cross, as part of her Trek4BigC fundraising efforts.
The former Wymondham High School student has been holding a number of events over the last few months as she tries to raise money ahead of a five day trek of The Great Wall of China.
The trek will see her encountering steep slopes, sheer drops and thousands of steps, all in aid of Big C.
Miss Spencer, 27, said: 'It's the first time I've ever been on any challenge of this type, so I'm excited about the whole experience, but a little apprehensive too.
'I've got lots of training to do before next September to ensure that I complete the challenge.'
She added: 'I'm raising for money for Big C because I think they are a fantastic local charity that do great work supporting individuals and their families.'
