Launching The Big Bake to raise vital funds to defeat brain tumours

Today marks the start of The Big Bake, uniting all our community to host their own Big Bake events to help raise awareness, as well as money for research and support for those affected by brain tumours.

It’s an easy and fun way to support The Brain Tumour Charity, spread the word about our cause and connect with loved ones to enjoy some tasty treats.

No matter how you hold your bake – with your household or by baking up a virtual storm on Zoom – join us to help raise hundreds and thousands. And if you’d prefer to fake it rather than bake it, see what takes your fancy at your local supermarket.

We’ll be with you every slice and bite of the way, and will give you all the tips and resources you need to raise some serious dough – what’s not to love?

We’ve also teamed up with our amazing corporate partner, Bakedin, to make it super easy to get stuck into The Big Bake.

When you sign up, we’ll provide you with a double helping of Bakedin discount codes to use on their website. You’ll also have the chance to enter our fundraising competition, with a range of delectable prizes to be won!

Jodie Tiller, a Big Bake superfan, said: “I held The Big Bake at home in memory of my Dad who died suddenly, aged 51, from an undiagnosed brain tumour, as well as my husband’s uncle who also died from a brain tumour in 2011.

“This charity has been close to our hearts ever since.”

We’d love it if you could share the news of The Big Bake’s return with your friends, family, colleagues and community, for example by posting on social media.

Every person who gets involved and every pound they raise will bring new momentum to the battle against brain tumours.

Francesca Towson, Head of Community Fundraising at The Brain Tumour Charity, said: “We’re excited to announce that our baking fundraising campaign, The Big Bake, is back for 2021.

“We’re calling on bakers and fakers alike to connect with those they love – virtually – and raise dough in aid of The Brain Tumour Charity to help us find a cure for brain tumours faster.

“Thanks to our amazing corporate partner, Bakedin, it’s really easy to get stuck into The Big Bake this year, and we’re providing all bakers with a double helping of Bakedin discount codes to use across their website.

“No matter what you decide to bake for your virtual Big Bake event – we hope you’ll join in and help us raise hundreds and thousands!”

Clare Normand OBE, from The Alec Normand Fund, said: "I can’t wait to watch our cakes - and the family spirits - rise for The Big Bake. What a perfect way to bring everyone together AND raise some much needed funds during these gruelling times."
