Get ready to bake a difference

This year’s Give a Hand and Bake week will take place from 23 to 29 October 2017 and we’d love you to join us by holding your own Give a Hand and Bake sale to raise some serious dough to help change the story for stroke survivors. 

Every year, thousands of people from all over the UK come together to Give a Hand and Bake. It’s a fun way to show off your baking skills, tuck into a few baked goodies with friends, family and workmates and show your support for stroke survivors and their families.

Holding a bake sale couldn’t be easier

Whether you rule the kitchen with an iron whisk or don’t know one end of a wooden spoon from the other – everyone and anyone can get involved, have fun and bake a difference for stroke. All you need is a generous dollop of enthusiasm and a hungry group of friends, family or workmates.

All the money you raise will help to fund world-leading research that will save lives and change the story for stroke survivors.

Taking part is as easy as pie. Order your fundraising pack below which is filled with recipes, tasty fundraising tips and all the bits and bobs you’ll need to make your event a sweet success. We also have many free and fun items in our shop that you can order for your event.

Knead a little inspiration?

  • Set up a JustGiving page and email the link to your loved ones far and wide. Tell them why you’re raising money for the Stroke Association and invite them to make a donation if they can’t come and taste the goodies themselves.
  • Have a giggle and make a few extra pounds by inviting your guests to play the sweepstake game – get a copy from the shop.
  • Print off a few copies of our recipes and sell them to guests who fall in love your cakes.
  • Visit our shop for lots of items to help you on the day.

How Give a Hand and Bake is helping to change the story for stroke survivors

Every year 40,000 people die from stroke and many more are left with devastating disabilities. By taking part in Give a Hand and Bake, you are helping us to make sure stroke gets the attention it deserves and the investment that’s urgently needed for research into stroke care and treatment.

The money you raise will change the story for stroke survivors like Karen who lost the use of her left side after a stroke. Thanks to stroke research, Karen was able to receive a new procedure called thrombectomy.

“I came out of surgery to recovery and within what seemed like minutes I could lift my arm, lift my leg, it was as if nothing had happened… there isn’t a day that goes by when I’m not grateful for what happened and the procedure I was able to have. I am a walking miracle, it's miraculous.”
Karen, stroke survivor
