Earlier in the week, the Ely Cathedral Girls’ Choir had a fun morning perfecting their pancake-flipping skills.

This year, money raised went to the Church Urban Fund’s Food Poverty Campaign - ‘eating away at hunger’.

A spokesman for The Big Pancake Party said: “All across this country there are children are going to school hungry and parents are skipping meals so that their kids can eat an evening meal.

“At the Together Network, we want to continue our work to stop this and so we have called on churches, schools, and families, throughout England to stand up to food poverty – and have some fun in the process.”
