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.
