Event Details

Bake for Brain Injury 2021

    We would love to keep you updated about our work and let you know how you can continue to help brain injury survivors. Please tick the boxes below to confirm that we can contact you:

Bake for Brain Injury

Keep calm and bake:

Get ready to raise some dough to support the work of Acquired Brain Injury Ireland and help bake the world a better place!

Once again, we are encouraging people to organise a bake event to raise funds that will make a difference to brain injury survivors.

Last year many of these events were stopped before they got started with Covid-19 arriving just as Bake for Brain Injury was due to take place.

That’s why this year we are asking all our supporters to take part in a home bake and we are encouraging you to take things online and get together with others while staying safe.

The 15th to the 21st of March is Brain Awareness Week.  We are asking all our amazing supporters to get involved and celebrate our brain injury survivors. You can do this by holding a virtual bake during this week or anytime in March.

All you have to do is sign up, decide what you will bake, and then raise some dough for Acquired Brain Injury Ireland.

Hosting a virtual bake will mean doing a video call with your friends, family, or colleagues where you can all have a cup of tea and a chat. You, as the host, can bake up a storm and show off what you’ve made and the people joining you might bake something as well.

You can set up a fundraising page on Justgiving and ask everyone you know to donate to show their support for your baking efforts and help Acquired Brain Injury Ireland.

If you’ve any questions or would like any more information, please just email us at fundraising@abiireland.ie or call (01) 280 4164.

How it works

Taking your bake event virtual is really easy. Just follow the steps below. You should have a great time and raise loads of dough for Acquired Brain Injury Ireland.

A virtual bake is hosting a video call with your friends, family, or colleagues. You could all take part and bake something in your own homes and then enjoy what you’ve baked or just have a cup of tea or coffee and a chat. It’s just another way to get together while being apart. Why not try it on a work Zoom meeting?

Zoom or other video calling applications which most of us have gotten to know pretty well in recent months will work great for this. Of course, You’ve also got the choice to host your bake with just your immediate family within the household and not go online.

  • Decide what date you want to have your bake. The 15th to the 21st of March is Brain Awareness Week.  We are asking supporters to get involved and celebrate our brain injury survivors. You can do this by holding a virtual bake during this week or anytime in March.
  • To take things virtual you should choose the video chat provider you are most comfortable with. Whether it’s Skype, Zoom, Whatsapp, Facebook, just make sure it is the right one for you.
  • Invite those people who can’t physically be there to join your chat so you can all be together virtually. Set a time or send a link to the chat to everyone you want to join. And remember to ask them to get in on the fun and bake something if they want.
  • On the day, everyone is on the call. Compare your fantastic bakes, have some great conversation, drink some tea or coffee! Maybe play some games or have an online quiz. You could show each other your bakes and vote on the best one.
