BILL IS BACK! A BIGGER AND BETTER SHAKESPEARE CHARITY DUCK RACE FOR 2017
Following last year's very successful inuagural event, Stratford Rotary's Evening Group is now planning a bigger and even better Shakespeare Charity Duck Race for 2017.
This year, Bill, the Club's very own quacking great duck mascot, will lead 2,000 ducks down the River Avon on Saturday 26th August at 2pm from Lucy's Mill Weir (opposite Holy Trinity Church).
The race is sponsored by Puddle Ducks, and supported by The Stratford Alehouse and Lodders Solicitors.
Prizes are: 1st prize: £150, 2nd prize: £100 and 3rd prize: £50. 4th prize: Family ticket to the Stratford Butterfly Farm.
Price is £2 per duck and can be bought online at: www.mydonate.bt.com/events/shakespeareduckrace2017
There will also be a separate Shakespeare Corporate Duck Race, and companies from all over the region are invited to buy a corporate duck for £35 each at: www.mydonate.bt.com/events/shakespearecorporateduckrace
Funds raised will go to the Shakespeare Hospice's Children and Young People's Service which supports children and young people facing bereavement or coping with life as a young carer, as well as providing respite care in a Day Hospice setting for 16-24 year olds who have life limiting illnesses.
Raising money for charity.
