Launching our Big Bandana Bake

Monday 15 January 2018

This March, we are aiming to raise £150,000 to fund a life-saving research project for over two years

This year, on Friday 2 March, we're kicking off Brain Tumour Awareness Month by baking a difference for everyone affected by brain tumours - with our first ever Big Bandana Bake.

We know the only way to do this is to go big. And when we say big, we mean BIG! This March, we want to raise £150,000.

Why? Because less than 2% of cancer research funding in the UK is spent on research into brain tumours. Because we know that for the 11,000 people diagnosed each year, and their family and friends, this isn't good enough.

Because £150,000 will fund a life-saving research project for over two years, and only by investing in world-class research, can we discover better diagnostic techniques, develop new treatments and ultimately, find a cure.

Francesca Towson, head of community fundraising at The Brain Tumour Charity, said: “We are so excited to launch our brand new campaign, Big Bandana Bake, for Brain Tumour Awareness Month and unite the community in raising vital funds for research into brain tumours.

“We're asking our supporters to join in on some fundraising fun in March by donning a bandana, getting messy in the kitchen and holding a bake sale at home, at work or in the local community so together, we can defeat brain tumours.
