Frying pans at the ready - it’s the Flipping Marvellous Pancake Party!

Frying pans at the ready - it’s the Flipping Marvellous Pancake Party!

Well, isn’t this exciting? This year we want you to join us to put the ‘fun’ in ‘fundraising’ by hosting a Flipping Marvellous Pancake Party!

On Shrove Tuesday (that’s 13 February 2018) churches, home groups, families, friends and co-workers across the UK will be getting together to enjoy plates full of pancakes, tip top toppings and an all-round great time, all with the aim of raising money for CAP. Every pancake flipped and pound raised will help to free people from the crushing weight of poverty – that's what it's all about.

Fancy getting in the mix? Of course you do! Well, here’s the good news – hosting a pancake party is easy peasy lemon squeezy. First, sign up here to order your free, fun-filled resource pack, which includes everything you need to plan and pull off the perfect pancake party. There are posters and invitations to promote your event, stickers and photo props for you and your guests to enjoy, material to help you get those funds stacking up, a handy guidebook full of fun ideas and tips, plus more!

We recommend making the most of Shrove Tuesday, but feel free to choose a different day if it works better for you. You can also host your event wherever you think is best, whether that’s your church hall, at home, in your office… as long as there’s a kitchen, you’ll be cooking on gas.

We’re so excited to see how your event ‘pans’ out, so don’t forget to spread the word and share your pics on Facebook and Twitter. Just include #pancakeparty18 to join in the fun.

So grab your whisk, stock up on flour, eggs and milk, and together let’s go flat out to end UK poverty!
