ORGANISERS at Uniting's pancake day have declared event was a syrupy success, with funds going towards the group's healthcare work in 2021.
The pancake day was hosted at the Wimmera Wellbeing Centre on Thursday, March 25, organised in partnership with the Community Activation Social Isolation.
From 10 am, a smattering of pancake packages went out to business and hungry individuals around Horsham.
Uniting executive officer Josh Koenig said the day saw more than 300 business orders.
"It was a great day. We have had Grampians Community Health, Headspace, and GWMWater all come down... So really a great day," he said.
Mr Koenig said the money raised would fund more healthcare programs in 2021.
"We take it into the pancake day funds and we will decide the best direction to take that in. In regional Victoria as everyone is well aware our homelessness and mental health issues are quite well publicised and prominent," he said.
"We are looking to continue to support our community. At Uniting, we look for all opportunities to grow, particularly in those fields.
"So we have a new contract with the PHN for mental health support, and we look forward to rolling that out in due time."
