Charity Duck Race
The fourth Northwich Charity Duck Race took place on Sunday 14th July 2019 as part of the Northwich River Festival activities.
With a bit of assistance from our enthusiastic canoe mounted stewards we managed to encourage several thousand ducks to reach the finishing line at the joining of the Dane and the Weaver. Our President and his helpers were aboard a narrow boat straddled across the mouth of the Dane and ensured that every single duck was recovered and accounted for. The ducks are cleaned and recycled in readiness for a repeat performance next year.
The winning ducks were:
1st - 1835
2nd - 76, 2076 & 3076
3rd - 662 & 2662
Tickets for the 2020 race will be made available early in the new year.
