What a Quacking good day last Sunday 9th April with nearly £900 being raised at the ever-popular Duck Race!

The event which took place on the River Avon, Pershore, was held in aid of Pershore Carnival.

George Williams Winnall age 2 from Drakes Broughton was the proud owner of the winning duck (No 35) and won £100 (sponsored by Hill View Ducks, Cropthorne).

Second place (duck No 123) went to Oscar Bradley age 15 months on holiday from Litchfield £75 (sponsored by Pershore and District Sports and Social Club).

Third place (duck No 38) was taken by Chloe (the dog) from Fladbury £25 (sponsored by Pershore Carnival).

Mr Colin Shepherd, Chairman of Pershore Carnival said “I would like to thank everyone that came and supported the Duck Race, Pershore Football Club for hosting us, Hill View Ducks, Cropthorne & Pershore and District Sports and Social Club for their generous sponsorship, Plum Tree photography and of course the Carnival Committee for making it happen”.

The money raised will go a long way towards giving the people of Pershore a great day out on Bank Holiday Monday (May 29th).
