In celebration of Shrove Tuesday, 20 teams took part in the Great Spitalfields Pancake Race organized by Alternative Arts to raise funds for our charity. Teams of four raced up and down Dray Walk at The Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane suitably dressed up, or down, tossing pancakes on the way. The E Team Clowns kept control of the crowds and the Lost Marbles String Band provided a melodious soundtrack.
