Cancer Relief Gibraltar says it is delighted with the success of its fifth annual Pancake Day held on Shrove Tuesday last week. A total of £6,480 has been raised so far.
A spokesperson said: “Thanks once again to the generous support of the Royal Gibraltar Regiment, the event was held at Grand Battery House where more than 400 pancakes were served to those who came along for a tasty pancake and to all those who ordered ‘take-away’ pancakes! The fantastic amount of £2,435 was raised at this event alone with donations also coming from other establishments and businesses who served pancakes for Cancer Relief Gibraltar. The grand total collected so far is £6,480 with still more money coming in! What an amazing result!
“Cancer Relief Gibraltar’s purpose is to identify and meet the needs of patients and their families affected by cancer in Gibraltar. We try to achieve this through the many services we offer from diagnosis, through treatment and thereafter. Every week the Cancer Relief Centre supports 70 to 80 people and as the demand increases so have our costs. This is why fund-raising is so important to keep the good work going.
“We could not do this were it not for the generosity of our supporters.
