Age UK Derbyshire couldn’t be happier to announce that their much-loved Duck Race will be back on 1st January 2022. All ducks are fully vaccinated and rearing to go!
After the months and months of staying indoors and seeing no one we are free to mix once again and what better way than to say hello to family and friends at the Annual Duck Race.
At this stage none of us know what the COVID situation will be but we will of course be following whatever government guidelines are in place on 1st January.
Enjoy a warming cup of mulled wine with a mince pie, tea or coffee, a delicious hot donut or a tasty hamburger or hot dog. Have a go on our tombola with some lovely prizes to be won, for the little ones we have a Teddy tombola with a cuddly toy prize every time. Some new stalls for 2022, including a face painter for the little ones…definitely worth a look!
What a fantastic start to the new year, socialising and supporting a local charity.
This popular event is now in its 30th year- would have been 31 had it not been for COVID!
It takes place at Manor Park Toton, curtesy of Broxtowe Borough Council and sponsored by Michael Key MOT, Servicing & Repair, Long Eaton.
We will shortly be contacting all local businesses and requesting their participate in our ‘Corporate’ race – for just £25 they can sponsor a duck or 2 for the bargain price of £40. They will have a chance to win a prize to share around their employees. This race which takes place immediately before the main race has become a popular and integral part of the day!
We usually gather around 1pm and we aim to launch the ducks by 2pm. There is lots to keep everyone busy during the lead up to the race and we try to make sure that everyone who wants to purchase a ticket at just £1.50 can do so.
Tickets for the race will be on sale from November. So reserve yours early to avoid disappointment.
