A sea of green plastic ducks raced their way down a Bury St Edmunds river to raise money for a hospice based in the town.
The Green Duck’s Christmas Quackers Race took place yesterday at the Abbey Gardens stretch of the River Lark, and the event was in aid of Bury St Edmunds-based St Nicholas Hospice Care.
The lucky owner of the first duck past the finishing post received a Christmas tree, turkey, as well as a hamper filled with goodies.
Each green duck cost £2 and all proceeds from the event went to the hospice thanks to sponsorship from Green Duck IT Support and Services, of Western Way, Bury.
St Nicholas Hospice Care provides help, advice and support to people in West Suffolk and Thetford in the final chapters of their life, who are living with long-term and life-threatening illnesses.
