Rickmansworth Pancake Race – Tuesday 13th February

Get your teams of 4 at the ready as the Rickmansworth Pancake Race returns to Rickmansworth High Street on Shrove Tuesday 13 February at 11 am! This is an annual event organised by local independent charity – Watford Mencap – where local businesses compete in a fun, pancake flipping relay! The traffic stops, people line the high street, cheering on teams as they race down the high street (hopefully in fancy dress!) vying to take home the coveted winners shield.  Afterwards, all the teams enjoy a celebratory pub lunch at the Coach & Horses, Rickmansworth.

This year, we’re fortunate enough to be sponsoring the event, which is in its 17th year. Having won the event last year we are hoping to hold on to the title this year, but most importantly we want to help raise as much money for this local charity and support the community where we are based. Watford Mencap currently supports 600 people in the local Rickmansworth and Watford area with a learning disability and their carers.

Amanda Jenshil, the Community Fundraiser at Watford Mencap said, “The event is an annual tradition in Rickmansworth; it is always keenly contested! We hugely appreciate the support of the teams that enter. Last year we raised a fantastic £3200. This meant that eight children with a learning disability could attend our after school club for a term. We hope to raise enough to fund these children for another term this year.”
