Duck Race 2017

THE ANNUAL DUCK RACE 2017

Ducks going into winter hibernation

November 2017 - Rotarians sorting and storing 5000 plus ducks ready for next years race. After a sucessful race in 2017, the ducks are sorted back in tens, hundreds and thousands. Ducks that are missing are replaced and some the vetran rubber ducks have their number re-written.





Our 2017 Duck Race raised an incredible sum in excess of £10,000


This allows the club to be able to make donations to our two main charities for 2017


GREAT OAKS SMALL SCHOOL and CANTERBURY OAST TRUST. 


The money raised along with other fund raising events during the year enables the club to make donations to other local and national charities along with support for International causes, such as the End Polio Now and Shelter Box

Once again many thanks to you all for enabling us to raise this amount which will help do a lot of good.
