Helping to enhance careers

2019 Pancake Race for Watford Mencap

Rickmansworth High Street closed off, the streets filled with supporters, fifteen local companies with their teams, pans and pancakes, can only mean one thing….  The annual event that brings the local high street companies and community together, relaying the high street in the Pancake Race Day in aid of raising money for Watford Mencap, a local charity who support and work with people who have learning disabilities, their families and carers.

We chose to sponsor this event for the second year as we appreciate how important it is to help raise money for this incredible charity. With the pressure on, considering Cityscape Recruitment have won the last couple of years, the teams were determined to make it three in a row. With that being said, the determination shown and healthy competitive streaks, we are very proud to announce that Cityscape Recruitment crossed the finish line as winners for the third year in a row.

With it almost feeling like a summer’s day as the sun was shining, the atmosphere was fantastic. What a great effort every team put in. Well done to everyone who took part.

Amanda Jenshil, the Community Fundraiser at Watford Mencap said, “The event is a highlight in the Rickmansworth community and it is always hotly contested!  We’re hugely grateful for the support of the teams that enter and the spectators that come to watch and cheer them on. And we couldn’t put this on without our wonderful volunteers who give their time so generously.  The money we raised from this event can allow us to fund 7 children with a learning disability to attend our After-School Club in Watford, for a term.”

We look forward to the next one in 2020!
