Pan­cakes any­one?

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By KRIS DANDO

Pare­mata School stu­dents are tick­led pink with a breast cancer fundraiser they are hold­ing this week.

This Thurs­day morn­ing, vol­un­teers dressed in pink will in­vite hun­dreds of peo­ple into their hall in or­der to raise money for the NZ Breast Cancer Foun­da­tion and the school. The third year run­ning they have hosted the event, the main draw­card will be the pan­cakes on of­fer for the win­ter’s morn­ing.

Last year $8000 was raised for the foun­da­tion and nearly $1000 for the school, with more than 700 pan­cakes served for pupils and their fam­i­lies.

Or­gan­iser Rachel Cal­lear says it is one of the stu­dents’ favourite events, es­pe­cially with school hol­i­days just days away.

‘‘It’s the talk of the week; re­ally, re­ally pop­u­lar. It’s a great way to bring our school fam­i­lies to­gether and sup­port a good cause. Some are mak­ing the most of the op­por­tu­nity to bring down their ex­tended fam­ily, to re­ally get into the school spirit of this event.’’

Tick­ets are sell­ing fast, Ms Cal­lear says. They can be bought from the school of­fice.

Spe­cial pink cup­cakes will be sold dur­ing the break­fast to fur­ther sup­port fundrais­ing ef­forts. It’s un­likely the cup­cakes will be eaten im­me­di­ately af­ter­wards, how­ever, as berries and yo­ghurt and maple syrup will ac­com­pany the pan­cakes. The event runs from 7am to 8.30am in the hall.

For de­tails call 233 9001.
