Thank you to all 12 teams that took part in our annual Pancake Race in the Eden Shopping Centre on Shrove Tuesday 25th February. We were delighted to raise £190 from entrance fees and would like to say a very grateful thank you for the kind donations made by Intel and the High Wycombe Beekeepers. This brings the total raised to well over £300. After a bit of controversy, we are pleased to award the David Griffin trophy to the 2020 winners – Eden Security!
