THE Andalucia Performing Arts Society (TAPAS) members and their guests had a fabulous time at their charity PANCAKE FUN DAY held at Cartama Estacion.

After feasting on a huge range of different types of pancakes and varied fillings washed down with afternoon tea, or a glass of wine, the pancake games began in earnest.

“We pulled out the culinary stops for this event,” said TAPAS Chair Angela Stopforth, who went on to add “we were especially delighted with the vegan and gluten-free pancakes we made which were a real hit, so everyone could participate and enjoy this fantastic event”.

No pancakes were harmed during the proceedings, although two were lost in the games– one into the pool and one on the kitchen roof!

Hosts Betty and Ken Ross taxed everyone’s brains with a cryptic quiz involving retrieving clues from the undergrowth. There was determined competitive fervour seen in the pancake race around the pool with winner Bernie Murray miraculously finishing with pan and pancake still intact.

“It was a fun afternoon in glorious sunshine and a great atmosphere with everyone enjoying the event. Thanks to members generosity we raised more money for our chosen charities, bringing our annual total raised for charities to €1700,” said TAPAS event co-organiser Betty Ross.

TAPAS is a music and theatre group, a Not for Profit organisation which performs shows, concerts, plays and organizes social events in the Costa Del Sol and Guadalhorce area.
