TV presenter Davina McCall, BBC Saturday Kitchen chef Matt Tebbutt, BBC MasterChef's Gregg Wallace and TV chef Ainsley Harriott are amongst the celebrities calling on the nation to put the kettle on and host a Brew Together fundraising event from Monday 7 - Sunday 13 October.
Held at home, in a community hall or at work, it's a chance to catch up with friends, family and colleagues over a cup of tea and make a donation to the charity to help stop people dying from bowel cancer.
Hoping to inspire fundraisers, celebrities and chefs have donated their favourite tea time recipes:
- Davina McCall - Crunchy oat and yoghurt layer pudding
- Matt Tebbutt – Monmouth pudding
- Ainsley Harriott – Chocolate parfait terrine with fresh raspberries
- Greg Wallace – Pear tarte tatin
- Rachel Khoo – Fig and chai treacle cake
- Olivia Wollenberg aka Livia's Kitchen – Banana mocha bread
- Jo Pratt – Courgette, pistachio and orange loaf cake
Bowel cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the UK and the second biggest cancer killer. Every year over 42,000 people are diagnosed with the disease and more than 16,000 people die. However bowel cancer is treatable and curable especially if diagnosed early.
TV Presenter and creator of 'Own Your Goals' Davina McCall said: 'I'm proud to be supporting Bowel Cancer UK's Brew Together. Every 15 minutes someone is diagnosed with bowel cancer in the UK. By taking time out of your day to hold a Brew Together event, your donations will ensure Bowel Cancer UK can continue to save lives and improve the quality of life of everyone affected by bowel cancer. Nutritionally balanced and packed with fibre, my crunchy oat and yogurt layers are guaranteed to go down a treat with your Brew Together guests."
Luke Squires, Director of Fundraising at Bowel Cancer UK, said: "Whether you bake Gregg Wallace's wonderful pear tarte tatin or whip up Davina McCall's delicious crunchy oat and yoghurt layer pudding, by taking some time out of your day to hold a Brew Together event, you can raise vital funds which will help save lives and improve the quality of life of everyone affected by bowel cancer.
"It's really simple to organise and everyone can get involved. Just put the kettle on, get together, ask people to donate and help us stop people dying from bowel cancer."
