Able Skills supports The Brain Tumour Charity with a charity bake sale

Back in April this year, Able Skills hosted a charity bake sale to support the work of The Brain Tumour Charity.

We chose The Brain Tumour Charity as it’s a charity that’s close to our hearts. More than 12,000 people are diagnosed each year with a primary brain tumour1.

The Brain Tumour Charity is the world’s leading brain tumour charity and the largest dedicated funder of research into brain tumours globally.

Our bake sale took place on Monday 8th April 2024. With a delightful array of cakes and bakes, cupcakes and cookies, the stall was busy all day. Students stopped by on their breaks and local businesses on the Riverside Industrial Estate came to the stall to enjoy a slice of cake and donate to this important cause. All the Able Skills’ staff enjoyed hosting the event, with some showcasing their baking skills!

Later, Clare Howell, Community Fundraiser at The Brain Tumour Charity, visited Able Skills for the cheque presentation. We’re delighted to announce that we raised £1498!

Claire also told us about her involvement with Ravi’s Dream Choir – the choir that got Alesha’s Golden buzzer on Britain’s Got Talent! Ravi was diagnosed with a brain tumour at the age of 6 and is still living with the day-to-day effects, but he wanted to audition for BGT to “show no matter what life there is, you can still achieve your dreams.” The choir consists of his friends, family, teachers, medical professionals who helped him, and other children from the brain tumour community.

Watch their performance when Alesha gives golden buzzer to brave 8-year-old, Ravi.

We’d like to thank everyone involved in our bake sale. Whether it was buying a cake, baking a cake, helping on the stall, or making a cash donation, please know that your support and donations are greatly appreciated.

We’d also like to thank the local businesses Eaty Blinders for their help with the event, Cragos for supporting the event, and Yesss Electrical for the generous donation.
