Cancer Relief Pancake Day an "overwhelming success"

Cancer Relief Gibraltar has once again used Shrove Tuesday as an opportunity for fundraising, with the event seeing an overwhelming response. The religious occasion prior to Lent is commonly known as Pancake Tuesday and is marked by feasting, before a period of reflection and fasting. Last year the event by the Charity raised around £3000.

400 pancakes were sold at Grand Battery House after just an hour, with organisers describing the event as an overwhelming success.They are confident they will surpass last year's fundraising amount.
