FUNDRAISERS from St Catherine’s Hospice are hoping to raise cash while having a flipping good time during tomorrow’s Pancake Day festivities.

David Marshall and Louise Leah have been busy perfecting their flipping technique in readiness for taking part in the “Strictly Pancakes” event in St Helen’s Square.

The fun fancy dress event, which has been organised by Scarborough Council’s Investment Team, will see teams of two from local companies, shops or organisations negotiate an obstacle course, set by Yorkshire Coast College students, whilst demonstrating their skill and unique style of pancake flipping.

There is no entry fee to take part, though a donation on the day to the collection in aid of Saint Catherine’s Hospice would be appreciated.

For more information and details of how to enter, contact the organisers Nick Taylor or Mary Turnbull on (01723) 232440.

Saint Catherine’s Hospice provides in and out-patient care, neurology support, bereavement support and day care for patients across a 1,600 square mile area, including Scarborough, Filey, Bridlington, Driffield, Hunmanby, Whitby, and Ryedale.

It covers the largest geographical area of any hospice in Britain other than the highlands of Scotland.

It costs £4.5m a year for Saint Catherine’s to provide its hospice services in the area.
