The World’s Largest Pancake

Posted by GIFT admin on Feb 23, 2013 in GIFT |

Apparently, the world’s largest pancake was 15 metres in diameter! Our pancakes at youth group certainly weren’t anywhere near that big but they were most definitely very tasty. We’re not sure how Steve Lowe managed to cook so many in such a short space of time – or even why he could bring himself to do it – but we are certainly glad he did! With various toppings including chopped fruit (the healthy option), squirty cream, chocolate buttons and a host of ‘squeezy’ items to choose from as well, it rounded off a great session that included a quiz based around facts on Lent and Shrove Tuesday devised by Steve Evans. The winning team consisted of Luis Saunders, George Wade, Sam Rawles and Charlie Reynolds – well done lads. As Fairtrade Fortnight runs from Monday 25th February to Sunday 10th March, we will be basing our session around Fairtrade on Tuesday. Don’t forget to let Jane have your money for Cadbury World and a current Consent Form if you haven’t already provided one. Jane Evans.
