This Is London - 8th February 2018


14 THE GREAT SPITALFIELDS PANCAKE RACE Get in training for Shrove Tuesday and join in the Great Spitalfields Pancake Race. All you need to get together is a team of four people suitably dressed up (or down) to enter in the relay race. Bring your own frying pan and they will provide the pancakes. The race will be run along Dray Walk at The Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane and all you have to do is toss the pancake a couple of times en route. The heats will start at 12.30 followed by the finals and the prize giving. The winners will be presented with a beautifully engraved frying pan! The best dressed team will also receive a prize. And there will be prizes for the best behaved team and the runners up and scrumptious pancakes for all entrants. Every year The Great Spitalfields Pancake Race is organised to raise funds for London’s Air Ambulance, the charity that delivers an advanced trauma team to critically injured people in the capital. The charity’s helicopter flies from the roof of the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel. Shrove Tuesday is on 13 February.
