The Dorchester Marie Curie fundraising group want you to come along to Borough Gardens on Shrove Tuesday to help raise money and awareness of the work they do in the town.

You can come as an individual or as part of a team. You need to bring your own frying pan, but pancakes will be provided.

It will be their first Pancake Day race, but they are hoping it will get bigger and better each year.

The Mayor and Mayoress of Dorchester are supporting the event and want to see the whole community getting together for a fun afternoon.

Richard Crosby from Marie Curie said: "The pancake race will officially kick off the Great Daffodil Appeal for us in Dorchester, which will continue throughout March. Lapel daffodils will be available from shops and businesses in the area.

"We have 108 nurses in Dorset who looked after 1200 patients with terminal illnesses last year. We've planted 1200 daffodils in the gardens in memory of them."

Mayoress of Dorchester Anita Harries said: "We want to raise awareness of how dedicated the nurses at Marie Curie are and how hard they work."

The race on 28th February starts at 4p.m.
