Videos wanted for pancake day event

Ahead of Shrove Tuesday, Winchester Cathedral has joined up with Winchester Rotary to organise an online pancake day event, hosted on the Winchester Rotary Facebook page.


In previous years, the Great Winchester Pancake Race has taken place in the Cathedral Close but due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, the event will be suitably marked online instead.

Running until 16 February, the online event will be looking for people to get creative with their videos, from the most flips in 15 seconds to the most unusual place or the best fancy dress.


To enter, videos will need to be uploaded as a post with a short description to the Winchester Rotary Facebook page — Winchester Rotary UK. The videos will then appear in the “Community” section of the page and as many as possible will be shared on the front page. There will also be the chance to win a prize for the most imaginative pancake video.


There is an option to donate and all of the proceeds raised will be given to this year’s Rotary charities, Trinity Winchester and Winchester Churches Nightshelter.


The Dean of Winchester, the Very Revd Catherine Ogle, said: “It’s a pleasure to work with Winchester Rotary once again, and this online event is proof that even a pandemic can’t stop us having a good time on Shrove Tuesday, whilst raising money for these important charities. I’m hopeful that 2022 will see the Great Winchester Pancake Race return”.
