  Cancelled pancake race is saved
Updated 24 February 2004, 11.30
A cancelled pancake race is back on
A school pancake race that was in danger of being cancelled has been saved by local businesses.

The organiser of the race, Derek Godfrey-Brown, couldn't afford to pay the insurance needed for the race to go ahead, so had to call the event off.

A local insurance seller heard about the problems, and offered a cheaper option that made the race possible.

A local company are even paying the bill, and are giving all the kids at the school free chocolate pancakes too!

Last year it cost 75 to insure the race, but this year that rose to 280 and organisers were told 25 marshals were needed to help.

Now the cost has dropped to 65 and no marshals are needed, so the race can go ahead.
