Planning ahead – we’re thinking about our Pancake Day Race on Tuesday 25 February 2020 !

We’ve just finished with Shrove Tuesday 2019 but, to us at CASE, it marks one year until our Pancake Day race in 2020, which we are launching today.

Our race will be held on Tuesday 25 February 2020 on the Humber Bridge, and promises to be a flipping great time for all involved! Teams will be gathered from local businesses, school groups and supporters from our community who will take part in the relay race on the bridge, and will raise money for two local charities. This event will raise funds to support the important work of CASE from the Northbank of the Humber and IGNITE part of VANEL from the Southbank.

Race rules will include tossing the pancake at least 3 times over the course of the race, no battering spectators of other competitors with leftover pancakes and, of course, no dropping your pancakes (or pans) in the river Humber!

Our Marketing Manager Steve Rusling is looking forward to the event, and says “I have been privileged to have organised pancake races in Cleethorpes in the past, and can’t wait to get started on the Humber Bridge 2020 Pancake Race!”

Jenny Hodson, Youth Leadership Manager from IGNITE, says “I’ve taken part in numerous pancake races in Cleethorpes and I’m excited to help organise the 2020 Humber Bridge Pancake Race.”

This promises to be a great event next year, and today we are inviting you to visit our website and sign up for more information on next year’s event. We hope you all have a great Pancake Day and we can’t wait to see you next year at the Humber Bridge!
