FLORISTS dressed as French maids flipped themselves all the way to the semi-finals of a pancake race for Stroud foodbank.

Staff at Faux Flower Design in Inchbrook, Stroud, also won the award for best dressed team at the event which was organised by Malvern Rotary Club.

Cotswold Costumes in Nailsworth donated the French maids costumes to the team, who have now claimed the best dressed prize for two years running.

Eva Thomas, designer florist at the company, said they chose to support the foodbank because the community are always “digging deep into their pockets to support charities, so for a change we asked people to dig into their cupboards”.

Will Mansell, from Stroud District Foodbank, said: “We are very busy at the moment and need all the food we can get so it is great to have a local group take such a strong interest in helping us.”

Foodbank donations of non perishable food items can be dropped off at the Emmaus shop in London Road, Stroud or the Light Family cards, books and gifts store in Stonehouse high street.
