Staff from two Lynn stores presented Scotty’s Little Soldiers with a cheque for £100 from the winners of the Shrove Tuesday pancake race held in the Vancouver Quarter.
A team of four from New Look won the race which saw them racing with their pancakes from the bandstand against several other teams. The winners were allowed to choose the charity the money would go to.
Carley Macey, deputy manager, said: “It’s all good fun – we all get quite competitive. We’ve been doing all sorts of fundraising for Scotty’s, holding collections at the tills and even a skydive – we’re just supporting our chosen charity.”
Stuart Robinson, chief executive of Scotty’s Little Soldiers, said: “The support we receive from individuals and businesses within King’s Lynn and West Norfolk is amazing. The New Look King’s Lynn team kindly donating their winnings from the pancake race to Scotty’s Little Soldiers is one of many activities the guys there have been taking part in to raise money for the charity. We can’t thank them enough for their efforts which allows Scotty’s to support the children of our fallen heroes.”
