Rising to occasion for appeal

THE Pancake Manor will mark a traditional Christian celebration by raising money for Ipswich’s flood victims.

Shrove Tuesday, sometimes referred to as Pancake Day, is the last day of feasting before fasting associated with Lent.

On March 8, Ipswich’s Pancake Manor will host a day of pikelet-related shenanigans including a pancake-eating contest, relay and flipping competition, with all funds raised to go to the local flood appeal.

Restaurant supervisor Cassandra McCullum said local members of the air force and rugby league clubs were supporting the event.

The fun and games will begin at 11am and finish at 2pm. Bookings can be made by calling 3812 8900.
