Mr Thomas, who lives in Norwich but grew up in the north Norfolk town, said: "I still have a lot of family living in Cromer so it’s a place I have a strong affinity for.

"Cancer is something which affects one in two people in their lifetime so it is something that is going to have an effect on all of us."
