Salford in call to Give a Hand and Bake for the Stroke Association


The Stroke Association is inviting budding bakers across Salford to don their aprons and hold a cake sale to raise funds for stroke survivors.

Actress Sophie Thompson is urging local residents to show their support for Give a Hand and Bake for the Stroke Association. She said: “Stroke can devastate lives. Sadly, my father had a debilitating stroke the robbed him of his speech. But with the right support, people can make fantastic recoveries.

“Give a Hand and Bake is such a splendid way to support thousands of stroke survivors who face a daily struggle to rebuild their lives. We need as many people as possible to take part in Give a Hand and Bake for the Stroke Association. I know that together, we can conquer stroke.”

Jim Swindells, Director of Fundraising at the Stroke Association, said: “We want as many people as possible in the North West to have some fun while raising some serious dough for stroke survivors. Whether people chose to bake a difference with friends, family or colleagues, Give a Hand and Bake is a great way to help stroke survivors with the lifelong support they deserve.”

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