Middle Rasen Duck Race

 

New Year's Day Duck Race 2019

The Middle Rasen Duck Race committee would like to thank everyone for supporting the event on New Years Day making it a great success and raising £1290 including £200 from football cards bought during the year. It was a lovely day and we had a great turn out. Many people were involved in ensuring the day ran smoothly and many Thanks to all, also all those who sponsored prizes donated gifts for the draw and raffle,

If anyone would like to support us in keeping this tradition going please contact Ron Folgate via the website link, we especially would like anyone willing to sell ducks (we will provide a numbered sheet and advertising poster)

Last year the Brownies were just one of many beneficiaries we were able to help last year and again ALL proceeds will go to local worthy causes and welcome any requests to be considered. There will be a suggestion box available at the presentation. We also are looking at the possibility of centrally locating defibrillator in the village
