Get baking

It’s time to roll up your sleeves, grab a mixing bowl and “bake a difference” for the Stroke Association.

Our charity’s fundraising campaign, Give a Hand and Bake, takes place this autumn, and we need budding bakers to get involved.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a seasoned chef or a first-time baker.

All you’ll need is enthusiasm and a hungry group of friends.

Whether you like the idea of an afternoon tea for your colleagues or a fancy show-stopper to wow your friends, a simple donation in return for a slice of cake will help us create a new era in stroke treatment.

Stroke is the UK’s fourth biggest killer.

There are more than 16,200 stroke survivors living in the North East.

Many Mail readers will know someone affected by this cruel condition.

By giving a hand to the Stroke Association, you will help stroke survivors get the treatment they need and the life-long support they deserve.

People across the UK will be baking up a storm from October 24 to 30.
