Beverley Charity Pancake Race 2019

Working in partnership with Beverley Town Council and Lakeland to put on this traditional pre-Lent race. A fabulous and fun morning was had by all participants and spectators.
Shrove Tuesday (also known in Commonwealth countries and Ireland as Pancake Tuesday or Pancake Day) is the day in February or March immediately preceding Ash Wednesday (the first day of Lent), which is celebrated in some countries by consuming pancakes. In others, especially those where it is called Mardi Gras or some translation thereof, this is a carnival day, and also the last day of "fat eating" or "gorging" before the fasting period of Lent.
