A community breakfast will be held in the Manjimup Timber and Heritage Park for those looking for company on Christmas morning.

The free event dubbed Pancakes in the Park will be hosted by the Manjimup Seventh Day Adventist Church and is for those with nowhere to go for Christmas, separated from family or friends or looking for some company on Christmas day.

Guests will be treated to pancakes, fruit, toast and other breakfast staples.

Event organisers Jeremy and Rochelle Price said they had held the event in Margaret River before which had been successful.

“It’s our gift to the community because we don’t want anyone to spend Christmas alone,” Mr Price said.

“It’s a great way for backpackers and those who are alone to spend Christmas morning with others.”

Children under 10 will receive a free gift.

Woolworths Manjimup will help supply some of the food and drinks for the breakfast.

Anyone who would like to donate supplies or find out more can contact Mr Price on 0487 148 636.
