I'd like to thank Anita Harries for organising the second annual Marie Curie Pancake Race in Dorchester’s Borough Gardens last week.

It was helped by the sponsorship of Rob Scott of Brown Goose Catering who provided the pancakes and the prizes for the races. Fortunately the weather was kind to us and a good crowd turned up to take part in, and to watch the races.

The two children’s races went smoothly, but there was a lot of pushing and shoving in the adults race, with a few suffering from bruised ribs from participants sharp elbows!

The runner in our ‘Daffy’ costume, Emma Drake is taking part in the London Marathon for Marie Curie, so this event provided some good training for her. (To support her, please look up her page on virginmoneygiving.com) The Pancake Race, which took place at the Marie Curie Memory Garden, starts the Great Daffodil Appeal in the Dorchester area.

There will be the familiar yellow lapel daffodils available during March from shops and businesses during the month of March and collections in Dorchester’s South Street on March 3 and 24.

If anyone would like to help our fundraising efforts, could they contact me online at richard.crosby2@me.com or call me on 07879 692369.
