Pancake Day

A time to put on an apron, have some fun, and feel good about helping others!

Held annually on Ash Tuesday, UnitingCare Pancake Day is UnitingCare Victoria and Tasmania’s leading fundraising event. Since its inception in 2002, more than one million pancakes have been sold and about $1 million has been raised by groups across both states. Donations and funds raised help UnitingCare provide practical support to people in need including abused and vulnerable children and adults, families in crisis, young parents and other disadvantaged groups.
