Have a flipping great time and help us support more vulnerable children

This Shrove Tuesday why not use pancakes as an opportunity to help the most vulnerable children across the country have a better future.

How to organise your pancake fundraising

Whether it’s a small get-together in your kitchen, a big party in your community, a twist on your Bake and Brew or something in between, every pancake counts.

£3 for pancakes and toppings

Just £3 from 7 guests would help a project worker give immediate support to a neglected child who is being manipulated by an adult to perform degrading sexual acts. By asking guests to make a donation, these yummy celebrations help us to continue our work to change the stories of disadvantaged young people.

1. Get the ingredients and recipes you need

Try this easy-peasy pancake recipe with sweet and savory twists.

Or you can try this delicious strawberry pancake recipe donated to us by blogger Vicki Psarias.

Once you’ve decided which recipe to go for, you’ll need to get your ingredients. When getting your ingredients, it’s always worth asking your local shops if they would be willing to donate any of the ingredients to support your fundraising.

2. Spread the word and use our resources

3. Collect donations and have a flipping great time

Remember to encourage guests to be generous with their donations and let them know what a difference it will make.

There are three ways to pay in donations:

  • Use our handy online paying-in form. Pay the money into your bank and then use this form to donate online.

  • Order a giro. Simply take the money to your local bank with the giro and the funds will reach us.

  • Write a cheque made out to ‘The Children’s Society’ and send Freepost to:

So get flipping, experiment with flavours and toppings and have fun.
