Hungry kids across Whitby and the surrounding area had a flipping brilliant day when they tucked into a tea of tasty pancakes this week.

Events were held around town to mark Shrove Tuesday.

There were all sorts of fillings and flavours being used in the kitchens of luxury hotel Raithwaite Hall.

Head chef Darren Iddon prepared pancakes gourmet style for the children of Airy Hill School who donned chef hats to help him in the kitchen.

There were strawberry pancakes, syrup ones, sugar ones, chocolate and of course the traditional lemon juice favourites.

And down the coast at the Grosvenor pub in Robin Hood’s Bay it was packed out as local beavers and cubs also got in the act.

They paid £3 each for all you can eat pancakes. The Grosvenor went through 150 eggs but the event, organised by cub leader Sally Fewster and assistant leader Jack Newman, raised just short of £600.

Ingredients were donated by the Co-op and Lidl supermarkets.

The cubs section will use their share to sponsor a child in Africa and a surfing session and the beavers are also planning an outdoor activity.
