STAINES CHARITY PANCAKE RACE
PLEASE NOTE THE 2022 RACE HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO UNCERTAINTIES OVER COVID RESTRICTIONS.
Since its inauguration in 2007 the Staines Charity Pancake Race has raised over £18,000 towards the running costs of Staines Shopmobility. The service has been used over 53,000 times during this period, enabling people to carry out every day tasks such as shopping, visiting the bank and visiting the optician.
The event will be held in Staines High Street on Pancake Day 2023 with team registrations beginning at 1pm and races commencing at 1.30pm. Teams race over a course 80 yards in length, stopping to toss the pancake at the halfway point, in a relay format.

Staines Shopmobility is an independent registered charity solely responsible for funding the services it provides. Use of the service is heavily subsidised to keep it affordable to all that need it so we need to raise an additional £30,000 each year to keep the charity open. This is achieved through a mix of fundraising and donations.
You can donate online by clicking the donate button below. All donations received are used towards our annual running costs and help us to continue providing this much needed service. We hope you can consider helping us by donating and thank you in advance for your help.
