The Rickmansworth office of award winning estate agents Gibbs Gillespie played its part along with other local groups in raising thousands of pounds for charity by competing in the village’s annual Pancake Day Race.
The ‘boys’ team of Philip Smith, Casey Smith, William Curling and Daniel Schultz went one better than last year and won the race.
Watford Mencap organised the traditional event on Tuesday 9th February and confirmed that more than £3000 had been raised by the all the teams taking part.
The race consists of a relay up and down Rickmansworth’s High Street while the runners try to flip their pancakes without dropping them.
Phillip Smith, Senior Negotiator, said: “It is the eighth year we’ve been involved and it is always a superb community event.
“It’s the third time since I’ve been with the company that we’ve won the race and after coming second last year we all said we were determined to win this time round. It’s always a good laugh and no-one takes it too seriously.
“The main thing is that Watford Mencap raise money to support their superb work locally.”
The Gibbs Gillespie ‘girls’ team of Sue Murphy, Christina Gough, Judith Silvester and Jennifer Copp also took part in the race.
Branch Director Fiona Lewis-Wall said: “The Pancake Race is a great must see event in the community’s calendar. It’s superbly organised and a lot of fun.”
