Join stroke aware­ness cam­paign and get bak­ing

Argyllshire Advertiser - - YOUR VIEWS -

Sir, I’m call­ing on bud­ding bak­ers to get in­volved in the Stroke As­so­ci­a­tion’s Give A Hand and Bake Week run­ning from Oc­to­ber 22 to 28, 2018.

The pur­pose of the month is to en­cour­age peo­ple to get out their rolling pins, make their favourite cakes and hold bake sales to raise aware­ness of stroke, raise funds to pre­vent stroke and sup­port those who have had a stroke.

I’ve joined the char­ity to in­vite lo­cal res­i­dents to host their own.

I dis­cov­ered I had high blood pres­sure and that I have a very high risk of hav­ing a stroke. Since then I’ve done all I can to change my life­style, and make sure I check my blood pres­sure reg­u­larly.

I also re­cently dis­cov­ered the fan­tas­tic work that the Stroke As­so­ci­a­tion does sup­port­ing stroke sur­vivors and their fam­i­lies and that’s why I’m ask­ing you to join us this au­tumn and get stuck in with Give a Hand and Bake.

This fab­u­lous char­ity fundraiser is the per­fect ex­cuse to get cre­ative in the kitchen.

Visit stroke.org.uk/GAH to sign up for a Give a Hand and Bake fundrais­ing pack and to find out more about My Stroke Guide and other sup­port of­fered by the Stroke As­so­ci­a­tion. Nick Nairn, celebrity Scot­tish chef.
