Francis Jackson Homes were delighted to sponsor another highly successful Olney Pancake Race on Tuesday 8th March 2011. The internationally renowned race always attracts media coverage from across the world and this year was no exception. The event kicked off with the children’s races, the boys and girls of the schools clearly enjoying themselves (especially with the promise of chocolate at the end of it!)
The main event was equally as enjoyable, a closely contested race eventually won by Nicky Sallis in one minute twelve seconds who was beaming from ear to ear even well after the race had ended. Nicky was surrounded by local and national reporters and photographers and said she will be definitely taking part again next year, it was brilliant fun!
Francis Jackson Homes will be sponsoring next years event on February 21st 2012, put the date in your diary!
