BEN is supporting this year's Great British Duck Race on Sunday 6 September, giving anyone who buys a duck the chance to win £10,000, be part of a world record attempt and have the chance to make a donation to BEN to support their industry charity.
Anyone wishing to buy a duck can do so here. It costs £2 to enter your duck in the race and there is the chance to make a donation to BEN while paying for your duck. The ducks are released into the River Thames at Molesely Lock with the winner the first one to reach The Sherriff Boat Club 1km away.
Charles Davis, BEN's Director of Fundraising and Communications said;
"It is fantastic to be a part of this year's Great British Duck Race and have a BEN presence for the first time at this national event which we hope to build upon in years to come. We hope that those in the industry will jump at the chance to be a part of such a fun event and they can even attend on the day to cheer their duck over the line. On a serious note, all the income BEN raises from the donations made while buying a duck will go to help our colleagues in the industry who are facing difficulties in their lives."
