The Warrnambool Uniting Church is running its 10th annual Pancake Day tonight from 5.30pm, with proceeds to help disadvantaged youth.

The fund-raiser supports UnitingCare agencies across Victoria and Tasmania, which contribute a variety of services to assist those in need throughout the south-west, according to Warrnambool co-ordinator Kate Armbruster.

“It’s a brilliant cause and the money raised helps the many young people in our community who need our support,” Ms Armbruster said yesterday.

“Last year in Warrnambool we raised just on $1500 and would like to do that again tomorrow night.

“The money raised goes to the combined funds for Victoria/Tasmania UnitingCare, which comes back locally to things like our weekly community lunch and emergency accommodation assistance.”

She said the event also doubled as Shrove Tuesday, the last day before the start of Lent.

“The idea is you use your rich food up in preparation for a time of more humble eating.

“At just $5 a serve with free tea and coffee, it’s a good value meal.”

The dinner at the Uniting Church hall, 115 Koroit Street, runs until 7.30pm.
