For Pancake Day, staff members from the Colostomy Association took part in the annual Reading Pancake Race in support of local homeless charity, Launchpad Reading.
Having been held for over 20 years, the race attracts teams from various businesses, charities and organisations across Reading. Teams must race down Reading’s main street, flipping pancakes as they run.
This year was the Colostomy Association’s first ever entry in the race – yet we managed to seed in the top 12 out of over 30 teams. The event was not only great fun but a fantastic opportunity to raise our profile locally with coverage in Reading’s local newspapers and radio.
The Colostomy Association’s team is currently resting up after the race – but they have their sights set on reaching the finals next year.
