The Royal Pavilion Ice Rink invited organisers of Brighton’s Christmas Pudding Race for a warm up on the ice today [December 5] as they called for more teams to sign up for next week’s fun race on New Road to raise funds for Cancer Research UK at 11am on 14 December.

Said Jessica Blake of Cancer Research UK, “The race is a challenge of dexterity, balance, speed and general silliness – you’ll be balancing your pudding on a tray whilst negotiating our perilous obstacle course and the challenge will be staying on your feet, with your pudding. Fitness is not a requirement!”

The event is sponsored by Southern Water, which is entering a team whilst other teams include Komedia and Circo. Teams of five can sign up for just £20 and there will be prizes for the best fancy dress, the most sponsorship raised and quickest around the course.
