Shrewsbury Canoe Hire is sponsoring this year’s Shrewsbury River Festival’s Duck Race in Aid of West Mercia Search & Rescue
We want to raise as much as possible for them this year and have decided to spread the net wide and sell ducks for the race online.
Please note: These are pedigree ducks fed on a special diet and exercise regime on the lead up to the race they have been out on early morning reckons of the river, silently watching the subtle flows of the currents and eddy swirls that could make or break there chance of winning the big race on the day. Whereas the ducks available on the day have mostly been kept in a bag in a shed since last year…
Our pedigree ducks are available to buy online with proceeds going to West Mercia Search & Rescue
Pedigree Online Ducks cost £2.00 each and you will also receive a money off voucher for a canoe hire to say thank you for supporting WMS&R.
The River Festival committee are still compiling the list of prizes for the race and we hope to have that available the end of this week, but it’s not about the prizes it’s about raising lots of funds for the terrific work that the WMS&R teams do all over the county and their river safety and prevention campaigns need ongoing support and funding.
We will give moneys collected to WMS&R on Sunday the 3rd for them to be able to add to there final days total
Ducks are available on the Day for a min. £1 donation
