National Children's Hospital, Tallaght, patients Eve Barnwell (5) and Hollie Redmond (8) are calling on parents, schools, children and offices to host their very own "pancake party" over the next week.

The event will run between March 4 and 8 and aims to raise funds for up-to-date equipment for the Dublin hospital.

Since its inception six years ago, more than €350,000 has been raised by pancake party hosts all over the country.

Director of Fundraising Ciara O'Grady said: "We really hope to build on that success this year."

A free fundraising pack, which contains all the information required to host a party, is available by registering online at or by calling (01) 414 2375.
