Sorry, that was a bad joke… but we just couldn’t help ourselves and we don’t know about you but it definitely got us in the mood for Pancake Day! Yes it was that day of the year where it’s completely acceptable to stuff your face with a stack of pancakes, get creative with your toppings and basically eat as many as you physically can.
So last week in the office whilst we were dreaming out loud about all of the delicious toppings we would have on our pancakes it occurred to us, why don’t we throw a pancake sale for charity! What could be better than making and eating pancakes with our local community and raising as much money as possible for a great cause?
Shelter is a charity that we are very fond of here at Patrick Henry, they work hard to help those facing homelessness and those who have a future which is looking bleak. With the help of Shelter there is now hope for those who are struggling with homelessness or bad housing. Shelter are helping millions of people every year who just need that extra guidance through supporting, advising and legal services.
In order to help this incredible charity continue their great work we wanted to help by holding a pancake sale. All the money we raised is going to Shelter so that they are able to continue helping the millions of people who are struggling each year.
Our Managing Director, Patrick Howell, promised to double all of the money raised on the evening. We are proud to announce that we will be donating a total of £100 to Shelter! We would also like to say a massive thank you to everyone who donated and came down to show their support. Although we did end up raising more money than actually selling pancakes… maybe we’re not the top chefs that we originally thought!
