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.
You can find more information about the bake sale here as well as the details to get a free fundraising pack.
While the 6 March is the official bake sale date, the whole of March is brain tumour awareness month so pencil something in on another date if it’s more convenient.
We will be doing a super-sized theme to our bakes and below you can find some ideas if you’d like to do the same.
Here are 6 giant treats perfect for The Big Bake sale:
