First ever Bexleyheath Pancake Race held
13:10 22 February 2012
The first Bexleyheath Pancake Race took place on yesterday (February 21)
18 businesses took part, including staff from the organisers Greenwich & Bexleyheath Community Hospice.
The event was won by AMP Electrical, who won a frying pan. TK Maxx Bexleyheath came last to receive the wooden spoon.
The hospice expects the race to raise about £2,000 through sponsorship, pancake sales and team registration fees.
They provide people with specialist end-of-life care as well as providing support for their families and friends.
Community fundraiser Kimberley Wheeler said: “I’m delighted with the crowd turnout and support of local businesses.
“The community really pulled together today, including our volunteers who supported the event with bucket collections.”
