The Duck Race is running as part of Milngavie Week 2022 along side the Classic Car Show and is to raise funds for charity. As well as our 2 named charities we will also support other local and national charities. This year our two main charities are East Dunbartonshire Foodbank | Helping Local People in Crisis and Children's Hospices Across Scotland | CHAS. We have 2000 brand new ducks.
How does it work? For £1 you are allocated a duck number. You can acquire as many ducks as you wish. These can be bought on the day from our gazebo or in advance online (details below). We need an email address or phone number from you so we can contact you in the event that you are a winner. Winning numbers will be published on our social media and website after the race. Total prize value is over £300. This year there will be 10 prizes ranging in value from £75 down to £10.
Our race this year is supported by Motorpoint Glasgow who have kindly donated all of the prizes. Keep up to date with what is going on through our social media pages. Allander Rotary Club | Facebook and Allander Rotary (@RotaryAllander) / Twitter

All of the ducks are then launched off the bridge and they race down Allander Water under the bridge at the bottom of the hill in Lennox Park just down from the children's play area. We have a boom in the water as the finishing line.
