Volunteers at Echuca’s Uniting Church will furiously be flipping and frying on Tuesday as part of Pancake Day.
Echuca-Moama residents can do their bit for the cause by tucking into delicious sweet and savoury pancakes to help raise money for Uniting Care to tackle homelessness.
Pancake Day coincides with the religious date of Shrove Tuesday, a traditional celebration before the start of Lent, the season of penance and self-denial leading up to Easter.
The pancake is a traditional staple as it was a chance for houses to use up eggs, butter and flour before lent.
On Tuesday night, the church hall at the corner of Hare and Pakenham streets will become a shrine for pancakes.
