PANCAKE madness was in the air at Clonmoney National School on Tuesday last as the 125 students geared up to make their way through as many pancakes as they could pos- sibly eat.

Ann Cawley, parent of Gregory Murphy who is making his first Holy Communion this year, organised to sell pancakes in her son’s national school in aid of the Haiti earthquake CK itoe

café in Quin, baked over 150 pan- cakes in her café, sprinkled with de- licious chocolate spread, mouth wa- tering maple syrup and castor sugar.

The pancakes were on sale in a classroom at the school and sold quickly, with all donations going to a Haiti fund to help save lives and pay for food for the victims of the earth- quake.

Yvonne Enright, secretary of Clon- money school, said, “People were able to make any donation at all for the pancakes, it could have been €1 0) )'(5) 0 ee Oe

The principal, Benedicta Mclvoy, and the students of Clonmoney are not shy in helping people in need. The school previously held a cake sale to raise funds for The Apostolic Soci- ety and raised a significant amount of money for the organisation.

Prior to the big day, the children were busy making pictures and post- ers promoting the pancake day to help injured and sick people who suffered in the Haiti earthquake.

“The children were really looking forward to the pancake day. They were really excited,” said Ms Enright.

The amount raised has yet to be to- taled but undoubtedly the proceeds of the pancakes sold will make some difference to the lives of the victims of the Haiti earthquake.

Ann Cawley and Clonmoney Na- tional School would like to acknowl- edge all parents, teachers, staff and students involved for their help in raising funds for the victims of the Haiti earthquake.
