Register your teams now for the tenth annual Horsham Charity Pancake Races, for your chance to have fun, support charities and promote your organisation’s role in the local community.
The Horsham Pancake Races are run during half term, so that families can come and enjoy the entertainment, creating larger crowds and a brilliant atmosphere. The event is once again organised by The Rotary Club of Horsham, in partnership with Horsham District Council, and is aimed at raising money for local Charities that are nominated by the competitors.
A special 10th Anniversary award, sponsored by Spirit FM Radio, will be made to a local business in recognition of their long term support for the Rotary Horsham Charity Pancake Races.
Cups and prizes will be awarded to the winners on the day, including prizes for the Best Team Fancy Dress, Best Over 40’s Team, Winning Charity Team, Best Individual Fancy Dress, Best Flipper and overall Winning Team.
Last year’s Winning Team, Harris Lord Recruitment, beat Sainsbury’s in the final to win the prestigious Sainsbury’s Cup for the second time. The St Catherine’s Hospice Team won the Rotary Shield for the winning Charity and the Best Fancy Dress Prize, presented by the Non Stop Party Shop, was won by the Team from Action Medical Research who were dressed as tinselly haired doctors. The Samaritans won the Waitrose Trophy for the Best Over-40’s Team and Leo Joseph of Harris Lord was crowned Best Flipper and took home the Rawlison Butler Trophy. St. Catherine’s Hospice, Chestnut Tree House and Action Medical Research all received monies from the event as a result of being nominated by the competing teams and/or the winning teams or winning the Charity Race.
In addition to the Pancake Races, a splendid medley of colourful mascots from far and wide will compete in Egg & Spoon Races for the Ringway Cup. Last year’s race was won by Buster the Search Dog who just beat Horsham’s very own ‘Howie the Hornet’ in a close run final.
