IPSWICH Women's Shelter appreciates all the help it gets.

Because of the nature of the shelter's services - providing support to women and children escaping domestic or family violence - it isn't easy to publicly fundraise.

Co-ordinator Cathy said The Pancake Manor's second annual fundraiser on Shrove Tuesday would be invaluable.

"Last year funds were spent on resources for the children - DVDs and games," Cathy said.

"Funds raised this year will be allocated to emergency relief - food, health and transport costs - for women entering the shelter.

"Last year we had a great time participating in the organised events on the day."

For $15 tickets to the lunch on February 12, phone The Pancake Manor Ipswich, 43 Brisbane Rd, Newtown, on 3812 8900.

Entry price includes a two-course lunch and a chance to compete in the Great Pancake Race and pancake-tossing competitions.
