Mandurah seniors get busy for Pancake Day

LIGHT and fluffy pancakes will be piled up high when residents at Mercy Place Mandurah celebrate Pancake Day.

Elderly residents will help prepare their own feast, kicking off with a group pancake mixture-making extravaganza on Tuesday, February 28.

Pancake Day, also known as Shrove Tuesday, is the day preceding Ash Wednesday which marks the beginning of Lent and is celebrated by eating pancakes.

Mercy Place service manager Christina Venables said residents were looking forward to cooking up a storm with their pancake feast and testing their pancake flipping skills.

“While making pancakes might seem like a simple activity, for our residents it’s a chance to show off their culinary skills and become engaged and involved with cooking food for both themselves and their fellow residents,” she said.
