Pop down to Great Yarmouth Market Place tomorrow for a day of pancake-based activities.

Great Yarmouth Borough Council is appealing for teams of four people to 'batter it out' in a series of pancake races, in aid of the Great Yarmouth Foodbank.

Catering students at Great Yarmouth College will also attempt the world record for the tallest pancake stack ever built, currently just over a metre (3.3ft). The record challenge starts at 11am, with the college students making fresh pancakes on-site. The pancake races and flipping competition takes place from noon until 2.30pm.

The donation requested to take part in the pancake races is £10 for a team of four. All funds will be donated to Great Yarmouth Foodbank. Teams should contact Laura Goodman in advance via laura.goodman@great-yarmouth.gov.uk to sign up and register their team name.
