Great Christmas pudding race

To get you in the festive spirit and to raise some money for charity, why not take part in the Great Christmas Pudding Race in London’s Covent Garden on Saturday 5 December 2009 at 11am.

The race is in the style of it’s a knockout and sees the teams negotiate a course of inflatables and obstacles while balancing a Christmas pudding on a tray and being pelted with flour, foam and water!

This annual race is in its 29th year and is a regular fundraiser for Cancer Research UK.

If you don’t wish to take part just go along and watch – it’s a fun day out with entertainment, guest celebrities and, don’t forget, it’s for charity. So if you are staying near Convent garden or decide to rent a house in London around early December, why not come on down.

Last year’s Great Christmas Pudding race raised £17,000 for the charity which is aiming to raise £25,000 this year.
