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 ready to Give a Hand and Bake for the Stroke Association.

Whether you like the idea of an afternoon tea for your colleagues or a fancy showstopper 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, and there are over 16,200 stroke survivors living in the north east. Many of your readers will know someone affected by this cruel condition.

By giving a hand to the Stroke Association, your readers will help stroke survivors get the treatment they need and the lifelong support they deserve.

People across the UK will be baking up a storm from October 24-30. For more information on how to get a free pack, visit
