Newcastle are ahead of the game with their fundraising for Red Nose Day – they seized the opportunity to take advantage of the North’s love of all things sweet and turned Pancake Day into a Red Nose Day fundraiser.

They raised over £100 from the event – that’s a lot of pancakes – and fed everyone the delicious treats. They had the bright idea of asking local caterer Zoe Williams for the use of her van and she kindly obliged. Zoe’s van is normally only used at night time but not only were Newcastle inundated with staff wanting to buy pancakes, they even had passers-by looking to purchase!

Phil Hall were the ones asked to man up and serve the pancakes. Seems there was quite the rush to be first in line to sample the goods. The ‘Three Degrees’ Hayley Foster (Day Despatch), Donna Mains and Laura Kane (Customer Services), couldn’t wait to try them!
