Bath’s Flippin’ Pancake Race 2016

On Shrove Tuesday – 9th February – Bath’s Flippin’ Pancake Race took place in the square next to the Abbey. Teams of four, comprised of businesses, students and organisations competed for the coveted golden frying pan. Runners were required to flip their pancake five times during their run – no mean feat!

Our very own Fiona competed in a team with the Volunteer Centre – with a catchy name of Saltford Slipper Flippers! – and although they didn’t win the overall prize, they definitely won best dressed team!

After fiercely competitive races the eventual winners were Team Dubai from Bath College. Many congratulations!

The event raised funds for our hub, ensuring that we can continue to tackle food waste and food poverty in the local community. The total raised was an incredible £228.31!

A huge FoodCycle thank you to everyone who organised, took part, donated and spectated!

Congratulations to Fringe Arts Bath for making such a brilliant event happen.
