Such fun raising money for Watford Mencap

This morning our sales & lettings teams took to the tarmac, running the length of Rickmansworth High Street in the annual Watford Mencap Pancake Race.

Sponsored by the Coach & Horses pub, this fantastic event always brings the crowds out (especially when the sun is shining) to watch the 4 x 4 relay heats, culminating in the Grand Final race just before 12 noon.  All in aid of the fabulous Watford Mencap charity, who do so much great work for our local community and for those residents with learning disabilities, their families & carers:

Heat one saw our rival Estate Agents Gibbs Gillespie victorious in their defence of the title they won last year, and Heat two was the one we were all waiting for, the 2 Sewell & Gardner teams competing:

The Lettings Team comprising:  Umar ‘Lightening’ Aziz; Julia ‘P for Pancake’ Pennell; Rochelle ‘Time for Lunch Yet?’ Latham & Reagan ‘Ron’  Bradley

and this year’s secret weapons:

The Sales Team comprising:  Joe ‘I use to be fast’ Rylett; Alex ‘quite quick for a big lad’ Sewell; Gary ‘no fool’ Sewell & Liam ‘Byrne-anator’ Byrne.

Aziz was bundled out of the way but re-gained the lead after a mis-hap with the pancake toss at the half way mark by Rylett, only to lose the lead back to the sales team as ‘quite quick for a big lad’ Alex stormed through the crowd and led the field to certain victory.  It was impossible for the lettings team to catch up with the boys who kept their secret weapons Gary & Liam for the last legs.

So Heat 2 was won by Sewell & Gardner Sales team and ensured that the final would be all out WAR… Unfortunately the leg-one Gibbs man dropped his pancake and had to go back for a retrieve, leaving the contest to be fought by Baker Tilly Accountants, Flippin’ Good from Cox, Costello & Horn Accountants and the S&G boys.  The Sewell brothers kept up the pace and gave the Byrne-nantor a good lead for the final leg, although he was chased closely right to the finish line and won by a length.

CONGRATULATIONS to the Sales Team @ Sewell & Gardner, all that hard training certainly paid off….
