Johnston Logistics UK compete in local pancake race

On Shrove Tuesday, 28th February, the East Anglian Children’s Hospital (EACH) held a pancake race in Norwich to raise funds and awareness for their Norfolk based project – The Nook Appeal.

The event, which took place on the steps of The Forum, brought together 7 local companies to compete head-to-head in a timed relay race. Within the circuit were four ‘flip points’, requiring the participants to stop and successfully flip their pancake before moving on, any pancake drops incurred a ten second penalty. After a lap was completed, the current running team member had to flip the pancake into the next runners pan, ensuring a good show for fellow competitors.
