Pancakes raise funds for the floods
Pancake Day is alive and well and living in the spiritual heart of Brisbane, at Albert Street Uniting Church, this March 8 from 8am to 11am.
Armed with barbeques, a marquee, and a dose of goodwill and heart, volunteers from the Albert Street Congregation will be selling pancakes to passers-by on the corner of Ann and Albert Streets.
All money raised by the sale of pancakes (for $2 each) will be donated to the Uniting Church in Australia’s Queensland Flood Appeal, for counselling victims of the floods and cyclone.
Shrove Tuesday, or Pancake Day is so called because pancakes use such products as eggs, sugar and butter, whose consumption was traditionally restricted during the fasting associated with Lent, a time of abstinence and reflection.
Everyone is invited and welcome to come and share pancakes, smiles and goodwill for Pancake Day in the heart of the city.
Wesley Mission Brisbane was established in 1907 and leads the way in providing care for kids, families, youth, the elderly, the homeless, the disadvantaged and those living with disability.
