Join us for our traditional Choristers' Pancake Race. The event is always great fun and will be followed by pancakes for everyone. This year we are teaming up with the Church Urban Fund as part of their 'Big Pancake Party' to raise funds and awareness for those in this country who experience the very real problem of food poverty. There are many families who struggle to put food on the table; children are going to school hungry and parents are skipping meals so that their children can eat an evening meal.

The Church Urban Fund, supported by the Archbishop of Canterbury, is calling on churches, schools, families and individuals throughout England to stand up to food poverty - and have some fun in the process! Come along to the Choristers' Pancake Race and Big Pancake Party and raise money so that no one has to go hungry this spring. Entry is free and for catering purposes tickets can be obtained from Ely Cathedral Box Office - 01353 660349. Cathedral Clergy and musicians are happy to accept sponsorship to race!

There will be a collection for the Church Urban Fund and we hope people will give generously. Just £3 can provide lunch for a child over summer as free school meals disappear £9 will provide an emergency food parcel for a family for one day. For further information visit
