Get baking to beat bowel cancer

BCAM-bakeit2beatit

Beating Bowel Cancer is looking for budding bakers in Staffordshire to help beat the UK’s second biggest cancer killer.

The charity want volunteers to whip up cakes or biscuits for a bake sale fundraiser at work, home, social club or sports club. The challenge is taking place during April, which is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month.

Beating Bowel Cancer aims to raise £10,000 towards its Hidden Heartache appeal, so they can support more patients and families. The money could cover the cost of the charity’s nurse helpline for three months, which could support over 600 bowel cancer patients, families and friends.

Each year in the UK more than 41,000 people are diagnosed with bowel cancer and around 16,000 people die of the disease. But despite such alarming statistics, the good news is that bowel cancer can be successfully treated in over 90 per cent of cases if caught early.

Sajedah Patel – Midlands Regional Fundraiser for Beating Bowel Cancer said

“fundraising support is vital to the work that we do; participation in Bake It 2 Beat can make a real difference to patients and their families”

Supporters can get started with the Bake It 2 Beat It Challenge by contacting the charity for a fundraising pack which includes exclusive Beating Bowel Cancer cake toppers, at bakeit@beatingbowelcancer.org
