Pancake Day brings community together

THE Delacombe Community House held a Pancake Day to raise money for Uniting Care Ballarat yesterday. 

The event was run in partnership Ballarat Neighbourhood Centre combined with the Link Up young mothers program. 

Link Up teacher Meredith Barclay said they were celebrating the community and the neighbourhood.

“It’s just a day for the community, where anyone could come down and get pancake or a coffee,” Ms Barclay said. 

The Bean Me Up coffee van was there selling $2 coffees with proceeds also going towards the cause. 

The cold weather in the morning meant not as many people were venturing out of their homes, but the few dozen that attended all had fun. 

Ballarat Neighbourhood Centre community development officer said it was an opportunity for people to get know others in their neighbourhood. 

Pancake Day has become a national fundraiser for Uniting Care, with businesses and groups encouraged to hold a day any day throughout March. Neighbourhood Day is on March 31.
