VIDEO: Flippin’ good fun at Rugby pancake race

A sea of colour swept across Sheep Street on Tuesday as pancake enthusiasts lined up to take on the big race.

The annual fancy dress Ladies Pancake Race, organised by Rugby Rokeby Lions, was raising money for William Lamont’s new pushchair.

The two-year-old has a rare condition and the money will help his family buy a specialised pushchair so he can be more involved in day-to-day life.

Spectators lined up to see the bright and wacky costumes, which included chefs, Minnie Mouse, a coffee bean and many more.

After the ladies’ race, men in drag took to the street for their fun run.

Amanda Gurney, who lives in Rugby, was at the race with her son Lewis, ten.

She said: “It’s the first time I’ve ever seen the race and I think it’s been really well organised.”

“The atmosphere is good and of course the sunny weather has helped.”
