Every 5 minutes in the UK, someone will have a stroke. Lives change in a second. Many people experience loss of movement in one side of their body, as well as having difficulties in areas such as speech, eyesight, memory, decision-making, fatigue, and continence. This is often combined with the emotional turbulence that can come with adjusting to life after stroke.
By hosting a bake sale you’ll be helping stroke survivors across the UK on their journey to rebuild their lives. Check out Stroke Association's website to see when the next Bake Week is taking place!
Last week we hosted a Bright Purple bake sale in aid of Give a Hand and Bake where we invited clients, candidates and our colleagues in our office block to the Bright Purple Academy to enjoy a savoury and sweet lunch time buffet.
A brilliant effort was made by the whole team. We enjoyed an international spread of Swedish meatballs, Spanish omelette, Norwegian baked goods, various British favourites and much more. We want to say a big thank you to everyone who came along – together we raised £150.00, and awareness, for the Stroke Association!

Being a sales office we also decided to add a competitive element to the bake sale. When all the votes were counted, we were delighted to crown James Taylor and Renate Hansen as winners of best Savoury and Sweet dish respectively! Very well deserved!
We hope our guests all enjoyed the buffet. We look forward to continue working with the Stroke Association; keep an eye on this news section and our social media for our next fundraising venture!
