It’s “Quack’s away” for the charity duck race this Easter Monday (April 2nd) thanks to Lymm and District Round Table.
The race, once again kindly sponsored by Co-op Food, starts at 12.30pm, while the children’s entertainment and stalls, plus the ‘Easter Food Fest’ on Henry Street car park – next to the youth and community centre – all open from 10.30am.
“The Duck Race is one of the village’s most popular events of the year and helps us to make thousands of pounds for charity,” said Gary Parsons, organiser and Round Table member. “As well as organising a fun day out for all the family we also strive to raise as much money as possible for good causes, which is why the support of local businesses as corporate or super duck sponsors is really important. As has now become customary, the owner of the winning super duck will be able to nominate a charity that we will donate £1,000 to, with £500 going to the charity of choice of the corporate duck winner too.”
Racing duck tickets can be bought online at www.lymmduckrace.co.uk – standard duck tickets are priced at £1, with corporate ducks £30 and super ducks £60. The first standard racing duck over the line receives £100, second place £50 and third £25.
Alternatively, tickets are on sale by The Cross, Lymm, on the three Saturdays preceding Easter Monday and you can also buy them on the day.
