15 teams from local businesses in Bankside will compete for
the coveted trophy. Residents, passers-by and pancake
enthusiasts are encouraged to come down and show their
support while the teams do their best not to fall flat while
racing up and down in a fast and furious pancake flipping
relay in the Market's Jubilee Place. Traders will be on hand
to offer pancakes for consumption, not flipping. Funds
raised from the event will go to local charity Paintings in
Hospitals, with collection boxes available should anyone
wish to make a donation.
