Telford Ice Rink embraces Shrove Tuesday this year by hosting a charity pancake race on ice.

Telford Ice Rink hosts charity pancake race on ice

On Tuesday 13th February, between 1-2pm local businesses and teams of four will battle it out to win the title of “Best Flipper in Telford 2018”. 

The relay race will require some serious balance and speed, whilst flipping a pancake until you reach your team mate at the other side. Bring your competitive hats, it’s about to get tense… 

Entry to take part or spectate in the pancake race is free; the team at Telford Ice Rink are simply asking for donations to contribute towards the Mayor’s Charity – Severn Hospice (Telford). 

All businesses entered will be given the opportunity to take photos and videos on the ice of their teams taking part, and are encouraged to dress in fancy dress to help distinguish what business or team they represent. 

Councillor John Minor, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Green Spaces and Parks, said: “This should be a fantastic and fun event! The only question that remains is, who will win the title of “Best Flipper in Telford 2018” and who will be taking away the booby prize of a wooden spoon?”
