2019 Winners of Launchpad’s Annual Pancake Race

Launchpad Reading 2019 Pancake Race Winners

We’re very excited to announce that #TeamMFG are the WINNERS of Launchpad Reading’s annual pancake race. The fancy dress event took place on Tuesday 5th March 2019 on Reading’s Broad Street, where crowds gathered-around to cheer on teams of local businesses.

2019 marked our third year of entering the race. We came runners-up in 2017, but failed to make the top three in 2018… But this year, we were back – stronger and fitter than ever – and we were victorious! The 2019 MFG Pancake Race team featured Daniel Gavrilov, David Chambers, David Bell and Managing Director, Mark Flinders, who stood in at the very last minute.

Our opponents on the day included teams from Intelex, Thames Valley Police, Macbeth Insurance and Reading FC, but the final came down to a very tense race between us, law firm Blandy & Blandy and estate agents Davis Tate.

The race was won by the MFG team, sporting rather spectacular Jamaican bobsleigh costumes, beating the ruthless team from Blandy & Blandy, who won the race in the previous two years.

But what it really comes down to is raising money for charity. Launchpad are a valued client of ours and our chosen charity of the year. We’re proud to support them wherever possible… and if that means running down Broad Street in fancy dress, then we’re in! See you next year.

Please celebrate our victory by sponsoring MFG on JustGiving. You can catch up with all the highlights from the day on Get Reading, Reading Chronicle and via our social media channels.
