fun as children do on Shrove Tuesday and raise valuable funds for local charities. This year Home-Start Hertfordshire took over the organisation of the event and asked Members of Soroptimist International St Albans and District to volunteer as part of the ongoing service we provide to this worthwhile charity.
Eight of us brave the cold and helped set up and man the registration tent for the 23 teams of four which took part in either a running or walking race. Our members fulfilled a number of roles during the event:
- Checking for adherence to the rules – lack of flipping and running when they should have been walking,
- Handing out the pancakes at the start
- Collecting donations from the public, handing out stickers and leaflets about Home-Start
- Tidying up at the end
