Last Friday, Carshalton & Wallington MP Tom Brake hosted a bake sale and raised £350 for brain tumour research. The money raised at the event will be donated to The Brain Tumour Charity, a charity that aims to find a cure to brain cancer and double the survival by 2025.
Carshalton & Wallington MP Tom Brake said:
"I would like to thank everyone who came out to the bake sale and helped raise much-needed dough for The Brain Tumour Charity. I am proud to say that together we raised £350! It is important to fund this important research and ultimately find a cure for brain tumours."
Every day, 31 people in the UK are diagnosed with a brain tumour. Survival rates are just 14% and have barely improved in the last 40 years compared with other cancers. Investment in research is extremely low and diagnosis is taking far too long. The Brain Tumour Charity strives to change this.
Tom’s team made a variety of delicious treats for the bake sale. The event was extremely successful, and many local residents stopped by to donate money and enjoy delicious cupcakes, a variety of traditional English cakes, appetizing flapjacks and flavoursome Croatian pudding. In total, £350 was raised for The Brain Tumour Charity!
