Some of Tracey’s thoughts on today’s Budget Statement

Tuesday, 4 March, 2014

Pancakes, crêpes, drop scones, hotcakes – call them what you like, the Rehab Parliamentary Pancake Race sees them demolished in seconds. Not because of their irresistible taste but because they’re vigorously tossed in the air by members of the House of Commons, the House of Lords as well as political correspondents, as they batter around a race course, vying for the winners’ title.

MPs, Lords and members of the Parliamentary Press Gallery gather in Victoria Tower Gardens, next to the Houses of Parliament, where they swap their warm coats and woolly caps for aprons and chefs’ hats. It really is a sight to behold. Today marked the 17th anniversary of the race and Tracey took part for the 4th year in a row since being elected in 2010!

Despite all the fun and frolics of the event over the last 17 years, the Rehab Parliamentary Pancake Race has served to raise awareness of the work that Rehab does in enhancing the life chances of people with disabilities and others who are socially-excluded in the UK.
