Pan­cakes for all at St An­drew’s church

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Vol­un­teers from St An­drew’s Unit­ing Church are heating up their fry­ing pans to flip pan­cakes for a good cause.

Hor­sham co-or­di­na­tor Kim Hartwich said al­though the church’s an­nual Pan­cake Day event was al­ways a fun day for the com­mu­nity, it was un­der­pinned by se­ri­ous is­sues.

“We are proud to sup­port the work of Unit­ing Care and call on ev­ery­one in our com­mu­nity to en­joy un­lim­ited pan­cakes and get be­hind this fan­tas­tic cause,” she said.

“The re­al­ity is one in seven Aus­tralians are liv­ing in poverty, with one in six chil­dren af­fected. This year all money raised will sup­port Unit­ing Care pro­grams for peo­ple liv­ing in cri­sis. They may be suf­fer­ing from home­less­ness, abu­sive re­la­tion­ships, ad­dic­tions, fi­nan­cial hard­ship, ill­ness or sud­den cri­sis.”

Pan­cake Day will be in St An­drew’s Unit­ing Church hall on March 3 from 10am to 1pm.

Pan­cakes cost $7.50 for ‘all you can eat’, while chil­dren up to age 12 eat for free.
