St Joseph’s, Retford, celebrated Shrove Tuesday with an event which was very well attended and raised approximately £350 for the parish.

  The Polish Community provided doughnuts and Polish pancakes which were delicious, and traditional pancakes were also sold to raise funds for the Church.  As a little bit of ‘bringing fun into fundraising’, our Parish Priest, Fr John Nwadike, took part in a pancake flipping challenge and the person who guessed the correct number of flips won a prize.  He flipped 90 times in one minute, the pancake didn’t survive as a whole but it was fun!
