BORDER charities and school children fine-tuned their pancake-flipping action on Tuesday.
Shrove Tuesday, or Pancake Tuesday, occurs in February or March on the day that precedes Ash Wednesday, which marks the first day of Lent.
UnitingCare Wodonga held its annual Pancake Day breakfast fundraiser on Tuesday morning at St Stephen’s Uniting Church.
UnitingCare Wodonga volunteer Alison Prenter said the event had been held on the lawns outside the church since 2004 under clear skies.
She said up to 60 people enjoyed sweet or savoury pancakes cooked on the barbecue.
“It’s a really pleasant way to start the day,” she said.
“It’s always been a fun day with the main aim to capture a dollar for emergency care services.”
Wodonga’s Scott and Vanessa Felstead and their daughters Madeline, 4, and Imogen, 3, enjoyed the breakfast.
“It’s nice to come out as a family,” Mr Felstead said.
