It was flippin’ fun and crepes galore for the eighth annual St Albans charity pancake races this Strove Tuesday.
Teams from businesses across the district congregated in the city centre for an February afternoon of charity competition, either in the walking or running heats.
PrivateFly took home gold in the sprinting round, fending off 19 other teams for the title, and Manpower came out top against 11 other teams in the walking contest.
Volunteers with buckets collected money for Home-Start Hertfordshire - a family support charity
It was run in conjunction with The Hertfordshire Business Independent. Home-Start strategic operations manager Suzy Moody said: “Considering the weather wasn’t that great, it is quite chilly, we have had a fantastic turnout.”
Adding: “The money is all going to Home-Start Hertfordshire, it’s going to help us support more families who are struggling, to really make a difference and help parents be the best they can be and improve their children’s outcomes.”
