Charles Stanley sponsor an annual pancake race that takes place on Shrove Tuesday on Guildford High St. Charles Turton (Branch Manager of the Guildford office), through his directorship of the Charlotteville Jubilee Trust, helps to organise the annual event. It is also sponsored by Eagle radio and is a great morning’s entertainment for the community.
This year Charles Stanley entered a relay team of Samantha O’Brien, Robert Brooke, John Devine and Charles Turton himself, and they were robbed! With no VAR (Video Assistant Referee) system in place there was no way to prove to the judges Charles Stanley had in fact finished third!
Robert Brooke being a keen pancake tosser also entered the Housewives Race in which he narrowly came second, for the second year in a row! He is already looking forward to 2020. Luckily the sun shone for all the competitors, lots of pancakes were had by all and the event raised £720 for Guildford Young Carers. A splendid morning’s tossing was done by everyone!! Well Done!
