FLIPPING FUN: Rickmansworth Pancake Race returns for 25th edition (VIDEO)

 Published on: 13th February 2024   |   By: Darius Morgan   |   Category: Uncategorized

The iconic Rickmansworth Pancake Race returned to the town today (Tuesday, February 13).

Seven teams made up of local businesses and residents raced up and down the town high street with their pans aloft.

All money raised from the popular town event, now in its 25th year, will go towards supporting Watford Mencap and the 800 local children and adults with learning disabilities the charity supports.

This year included a “Fun Flippers” event, which saw people with disabilities given the opportunity to race.

Michelle Hamilton, Watford Mencap fundraising manager, said: “This is one of my favourite events of the whole year because it is such a community event. Loads of businesses take part, community groups, and people come and watch.

“It’s all about having fun, but more importantly, raising money for services and activities for local people with learning disabilities.

“We’d love more people to get involved, it’s just half an hour out of your Tuesday and it doesn’t always rain! It’s great team building, and the more people that take part, the bigger and better the event will be next year, and we want to keep going as long as we can.”
