We're calling on foodies and fundraisers alike to cook up some cash for Stand Up To Cancer by bringing your household together for a very special Sunday brunch.
Get your hands on the Sunday Brunch-Raiser kit, full of tips, top-notch recipes from celebrity chefs including Jamie Oliver and Tom Kerridge and handy printables to help you create an exclusive restaurant experience at home - with the bill being donated to life-saving research.
Starting from Sunday 4th October, Sunday Brunch will be Standing Up To Cancer with us. Tune in to Channel 4 at 9.30am every Sunday in October, for added inspiration to get involved, including seeing some of the delicious recipes in the free Sunday Brunch-Raiser kit cooked live on-air!
Supprting Stand Up To Cancer is important to the Sunday Brunch co-hosts Simon Rimmer and Tim Lovejoy. Simon Rimmer said, “I remember vividly the moment that I was told my dad had cancer. I was only nine years old and it hit me like a ton of bricks. He’s the strongest man I know and thankfully he’s still here with us today. Stand Up To Cancer is such an important cause, funding research to help people just like my lovely dad. It couldn't be easier to sign up and download the fundraising pack from the Stand Up To Cancer website, which is full of brunch recipe ideas. I’ve suggested a brunch classic: blueberry pancakes. I look forward to seeing all of your amazing foodie pictures and hearing all about your donations on the show – enjoy!”
Tim Lovejoy added, “I didn’t think cancer was something that would affect my life or my family; I just didn’t really think about it much at all. Then my brother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer at the age of 37. It was such a shock. And when James died, I almost couldn’t believe it. But one in two people in the UK are diagnosed with cancer. So really, it affects all of us. That’s why I’m asking people to join me and Stand Up To Cancer this October by hosting your very own Sunday brunch. All you need to do is sit down with your household or bubble - invite any others over videocall if you like - eat good food and raise money for life-saving research to beat this horrendous disease.”
Co-hosts Tim Lovejoy and Simon Rimmer can't wait to see what you cook up. Send pics of you and your household getting involved to firstname.lastname@example.org, for a chance to see yourselves on the show, as they celebrate amazing Brunch-Raisers up and down the country.
Keep your eyes peeled for your chance to get your hands on a limited edition Sunday Brunch and Stand Up To Cancer mug, so that you can kick back and enjoy a well deserved cuppa once the washing up is done!
