Sponsor a duck for charity

Have your say

HUNDREDS of rubber ducks will take to the water in a fundraising stunt.

Charity Caudwell Children is urging people to sponsor a duck ahead of a fundraising race in the Derbyshire Dales on Monday, August 27. About 600 plastic ducks are expected to race down the River Dore in a bid to be the first past the finishing line.

Each duck costs £2 with proceeds going to providing treatment, therapy, equipment and family support services for sick and disabled children throughout the UK.

There will be prizes on offer for first, second and third places. The race starts at 3pm on the day.
