A popular annual pancake race in High Wycombe needs more teams to sign up - or it could face being cancelled again.

High Wycombe’s pancake race is set to whip the town into a flipping frenzy on Tuesday, February 25 - but organisers fear the challenge may have to be scrapped if more teams do not sign up to take part.

Last year's pancake race - which is organised and in aid of High Wycombe Shopmobility - was a huge success, but in 2018 the race was eventually cancelled because of a lack of numbers.

The fun race, which starts outside the library in the Eden Shopping Centre at 10am, sees teams of three people race towards the finish line while flipping a pancake - and previous winners have included the Eden Shopping Centre security team, Royal Grammar School, John Hampden Grammar School and Noodle Nation.

All proceeds from the race go towards helping organisers High Wycombe Shopmobility.

This year, Bill's restaurant has donated a hamper of goodies for the winning team and the successful runners will get a medal and their name engraved on the David Griffin charity shield.
