Volunteers from BSE’s Sydney office recently heated up their frying pans and flipped pancakes for a good cause.
February 28th, marked Pancake Day, UnitingCare’s annual fundraising event that encourages people in their local communities to support those who are doing it tough by creating their own pancake-flipping event in their home, work, school or community. Celebrating Pancake Day is a further commitment from BSE management and staff to improving the lives of those less fortunate in our community.
“Pancake Day is always a fun day in the community, but there are serious issues that underpin it. BSE is proud to support the work of UnitingCare and encourage everyone to get involved” said local UnitingCare Pancake Day coordinator Jessica Sims.
The reality is that 1 in 7 Australians are living in poverty and as poverty levels rise across Australia, it’s important that communities pull together to support those around them who need it most. Now in its 16th year, UnitingCare Pancake Day aimed to raise $100,000.
