Traders Retain Pancake Race Trophy

February 13, 2018

As shoppers at Leicester Market tucked into delicious pancakes, teams came together to compete in the Market’s fourth annual Pancake Day Race – raising money for local hospice LOROS.

With funds being raised through donations delivered in exchange for pancakes prepared in the Market’s Corn Exchange square already, Leicester Market’s traders pledged a £100 donation to LOROS in the name of the winning team.

Darting through a specially-designed course, runners were made to flip their pancakes during relay-style race, with teams competing representing Leicester Market’s traders, Hastings Direct, Ramada Encore and LOROS.

After excitement and spills along the way, Leicester Market’s traders emerged victorious, retaining their title having won the race last year also.

Many thanks to everybody who came down to Leicester Market to support today’s event, in addition to our teams that took part.

We’ll announce how much was raised for LOROS in due course.
