Duck Race 2019
The Carnival Day Duck Race went ahead as usual but with more corporate ducks, coloured red, taking part this year. Several hundred ducks entered the River Brain upstream of the finishing post in Bridge Street. This year, although the judges word is final, there was no need for them to make difficult decisions as there was a clear winner, duck number 136 was first past the line. The photo shows the judges waiting for the ducks.....
For over sixty years the Rotary Club of Witham has been supporting local, national and international charities.
Recently the Club has supported the Boys Brigade, Brainwave, Essex Air Ambulance, St John Ambulance, Home Start, Shelter Box and the International Red Cross, as well a dozen other local charities. Also, every junior school pupil receives a dictionary in year 5.
Here is a picture of pupils at Templars School , November 2017, showing off their dictionaries.
Funds are raised in many ways. People in Witham know about Santa and his sleigh and its tour round the town just before Christmas collecting for the charities the Club supports. There is also the duck race, seen at the start, below, in Bridge Street, on Carnival Day.
So funds come from events like steet collections, sponsored walks, hot chestnut sales and so on. Keep an eye on the Charity Window in Richards Funeral Services in Newland Street for the latest details on all Witham
