We are delighted to welcome Kingsley Healthcare as one of our sponsors of the Olney Pancake Race. The ‘Olney Meadows Care Home Marquee’ in the Market Place will host our special Pancake Breakfast and cookery demonstration.

The company is constructing a 66-bedroom luxury care home in Olney, which opens in July 2024. Marketing director Stephen Pullinger said: “We are delighted to be a sponsor of Olney’s famous Pancake Race and are keen to forge other links with the local community as we approach opening. It will be important for our residents to feel at the heart of the community.”

In addition, Whitworth Bros Ltd, the largest flour milling company in the UK, are very pleased to be sponsoring the Kitchen in the Marquee, and The Oakman Group, owners of The Cherry Tree Pub & Restaurant, are loaning their Head Chef, Ben Francis to cook for us. McCarthy Stone has kindly made a donation to our operating costs.

They all join our main sponsor, Francis Jackson Homes.

We are so grateful to all of you – we couldn’t stage our historic Olney Pancake Race without you!
