Flipping out for a good cause
Local people are being encouraged to help raise some dough for local charities by joining in Pancake Day celebrations next Tuesday, February 28.
While Pancake Day is a national fundraiser, all money raised from the local event goes back into supporting the local UnitingCare Ageing group (better known as Caroona) and the Lismore Regional Mission.
February 28 is Shrove Tuesday and the beginning of Lent that whole period has to do with sacrifice and we are asking people to make a sacrifice of money and help the disadvantaged in our community, said Reverend Bob Rutherford from Lismore Uniting Church. And its not that much of a sacrifice you do get a delicious pancake in return. All funds we raise help those locals affected by poverty, homelessness, disability, family breakdown, abuse or neglect, as well as the elderly in our community.
The cost is $2 per pancake or two for $3 and orders can be made on the day to 6621 5801.
Businesses can also fax orders through to 6621 5051 on Monday, February 27 ($20 minimum order) and the pancakes will be delivered to your door on Tuesday.
Alternatively, people can drop by the outdoor caf at the Red Dove Centre, 80 Keen Street, Lismore, from 8am-1pm and enjoy delicious pancakes with friends on the spot.
