2018 Macclesfield Pancake Race
Tuesday 13th February 10:00 to 13:00
Macclesfield Town Hall

Local businesses, clubs and organisations are being invited to have fun, get out in the local community and raise money for a worthy cause by entering Macclesfield's annual pancake race.

The Shrove Tuesday event, which this year falls on February 13th, sees competitors sprinting up and down Mill Street outside Macclesfield Town Hall while tossing pancakes.

The event is being run by ECHO — the official charity of East Cheshire NHS Trust, which runs local health services including Macclesfield District General Hospital. Any funds raised for ECHO go towards providing the most up-to-date equipment and pioneering treatment to improve direct patient care, both at Macclesfield District General Hospital and in other local community healthcare services.

A number of prizes will be on offer — including a prize for best fancy dress — and local radio station Silk FM will be on hand to compere and keep the crowds entertained.
