A brilliant £315.31 was raised for Family Friends at the 2016 Maidenhead Pancake Race.
Thanks to our friends at Enjoy Maidenhead, all proceeds were donated to Family Friends, enabling us to support local children and families facing difficult times.
The object of the race was to get to the finishing line first, carrying a frying pan with a pancake in it having flipped it a minimum of three times. This year’s winners, Magnet Expressions Gym, narrowly beat Noodle Nation to the title. But it was not all about speed – it was also about style: our Best Dressed Team for the second year running were the Beach Babes from Norden Farm!
Freda the Hippo missed out in the Mascot Race, which was won by the Bunny Fun Runners from Maidenhead Thames Rotary Club.
Thanks to all the other local organisations who joined in the fun: Shanly Homes, Gardner Leader Solicitors, Maidenhead Advertiser, David Lloyd Gym, Gourmet Chicken Company, The Spicy Chef, Magnet Leisure Centre, Windsor St George Rotary Club, Scrumys Rugby and RBWM Grow Our Own.
Next year’s race – the 10th anniversary event – will take place on Tuesday 28th February, so put the date in your diary now so you can be Flipping Great for Family Friends in 2017!
