Pancake Day united staff and residents at a Soham care home in a bid to find a champion ‘flipper’.  

With the same stoicism displayed throughout the lockdown, Soham Lodge Care Home determined a business-as-usual approach to this annual tradition.   

And to celebrate they filmed a frying pan – and pancake – being flipped here, flipped there and flipped everywhere across the home.

Even bed bound residents raised a smile as it was their turn for a ‘flipping moment’.  

Activities manager Emma Hales led the charge of the pancakes – and with considerable success.
