Spring Bank Holiday 2023, the Ducks are coming back... with friends and associates!
The Rotary Club of Turton's Duck race is an eagerly awaited event of the summer calendar when thousands of pounds are raised for local charities.
Thousands of ducks can be seen bobbing their way down the fast-flowing Bradshaw Brook cheered on by a large crowd who come out to support this annual event and line the banks of the brook as all bets are off.
The club raises more than £9,000 each year through selling tickets for corresponding numbered plastic ducks, which are then released into the brook over two heats with each of the winners going into a grand final.
If you are a local charity or organisation and would like to sell our Duck Race tickets, please get in touch. Every penny you raise is kept by your charity or organisation. And, of course, the winning ticket holder receives £1,000 cash! There is also a children's race, with tickets bought on the day.
We thank you in advance for your kind consideration, and we look forward, with your support, to raising a record amount of money this year for many who need our and your help and assistance.
If you would like to get involved with Turton Rotary Club and feel you can help us out with future fundraising activities and have great fun doing so, then please contact our club Treasurer, Peter Gaskell for more information.
back The annual competition sees numbered plastic ducks, which all correspond to tickets sold, released into Bradshaw Brook. Money raised goes directly to charities and organisations.
