Bath's Flippin' Pancake Race 2015

A pancake race is being organised in Bath to celebrate Shrove Tuesday. The event, managed by Scarlett Mosnier, a volunteer for Fringe Arts Bath, is set to kick off next to Bath Abbey in Kingston Parade on Tuesday, 17th February.

The event is part of a fundraiser for FoodCycle, a volunteer powered community project which is active throughout the UK that works to 'reduce food poverty and social isolation'.

Children are invited to run the course from 2.30 to 3.30pm for a 50p entry fee, all of which will go towards the charity.

The event for grown-ups kicks off at 3.30pm and teams of four will compete to win a golden frying pan trophy - the entry fee for this is £20, also going to Food Cycle.

The occasion will be followed by National Student Volunteering week from the 23rd February to the 1st March, which Scarlett, who is also Student Engagement Officer at Bath College is encouraging students to participate in.
