This year’s Duck Race, once again in aid of Alzheimer’s Research UK as part of the Festival of the Fells was a huge success with over 1700 ducks sold to race through the water of Rothay Park.
Heat winners received £20 and the Grand Final of 65 ducks resulted in a winning prize of £200, kindly donated by Cumberland Building Society, being won by Kieran McDonnell.
His prize was made even more special as 4 generations of his family were at the park watching the race.
The total raised for ARUK is in the region of £1750 – an amazing result.
Well done Team AK Duck Race!
