A feast of homemade fluffy pancakes and bottomless cups of tea and coffee will be awaiting the community on February 13 when St Augustine Uniting Church hosts its annual Pancake Day. 

Now in it’s fifteenth year the church commemorates the day as Shrove Tuesday in preparation for Lent prior to Easter.

Church leader Jane Jilley said the event had been run for many years and raised funds for YouthCARE chaplains in South West schools. 

“They are a listening ear for the children who can talk to them without any judgement – it’s a supportive pastoral role and the chaplains support the whole school community,” she said. 

Chairwoman Glenys White said it was a lovely time for people to come together and support a worthwhile cause. 

“We serve delicious pancakes with beautiful coffee and tea and every year people say the pancakes are better than last year,” she said.  

Pancakes will be available from 9.30am for $10 and all funds raised will go towards supporting YouthCARE chaplains in the South West.
