How it works

A Great Pancake Party is a great excuse to get together with friends and family and do good at the same time. Here are our top tips to help you host a great party and raise funds.

It really couldn't be easier:

1. Join the party

Sign up for a free party pack in the post or download one

2. Get the invites out

Choose your time and venue. At home, work, school, al fresco, with your brownie pack or at your local football club - it's up to you! Send invitations far and wide; create a Facebook event, put up posters, email people.

3. Whisk up a storm (or nip to the shops)

This could be your chance to show off your inner Nigella, or if you don't have the time shop bought pancakes are delicious too. Whatever's good for you is good for us.

4. Have a flippin' marvellous party

Enjoy yourself and have a fab time while you fundraise. Put your pancake donation pot somewhere prominent; have your sponsorship forms to hand, and take lots of photos!

There are lots of little added extras you could do to raise more funds, including:

  • pancake flipping competition
  • have a quiz
  • guess the flavour competition

5. Pay your funds in

Once the party is over and you've had a rest, pay in your donation. We'll put the money raised to good use, to help support families and save lives.

Send us your photos and tag us on Facebook and Twitter. Don't forget #greatpancakeparty
