Borough Market

Put forward a team or come and support members of the Bankside business community as they show off their pancake-tossing skills at our annual Charity Pancake Day Race. All proceeds raised will go to support Paintings in Hospitals, a local charity that places fine art in clinical settings. Every year their work brings comfort and reassurance to over 1.8 million people across the UK, from London to York, Cardiff to Belfast. They work across the health sector, including hospitals, hospices, care homes, GP surgeries, cancer centres and special needs schools.

The races will start at 12:30pm and finish at around 2.00pm on 17 February 2015 


The races will be held in Borough Market's Jubilee Place just off Winchester Walk.

How do I enter?

Better Bankside member businesses can submit teams of four runners. To enter a team email Joey (JG [at] with a team name and the names of those racing. We encourage teams to make a donation and raise funds in their offices for the event, as all the money collected will be going to a great local charity.   

Can I watch?

Please come down to cheer on your colleagues, friends, families and strangers. There will be pancakes. There will be music. There will be food from the one of the world's best markets. There will be fun. There will be one winning team. So join us and support a great cause while having a great time.
