6 giant treats that are perfect for The Brain Tumour Charity’s Big Bake sale

Bake it or fake it, just get involved!

March is Brain Tumour Awareness Month, so the perfect time whip up one of our giant bakes and join a local bake sale, or even better – set up your own!

The Brain Tumour Charity is a national charity which funds ground-breaking research, campaigns for greater awareness and provides vital support services for those affected by brain tumours, which are the biggest cancer killer of children and adults under 40.

To support our charity partner, staff at TI Media will be joining The Big Bake sale, an annual event that aims to raise money for the charity by selling cakes, biscuits, pies, brownies or anything else that might temp a donation for the cause.
