COVID19 Doesn’t Stop the Leyland Duck Race 2021
The Leyland Rotary Club are holding their annual duck race this May Bank Holiday. Given the COVID19 situation it is with a twist! The duck race is not this year on the River Lostock but is a virtual online race which takes place over the entire Bank Holiday weekend. It is starting on the 28th May and finishing on Bank Holiday Monday at noon. The ducks can be tracked over this time to see who is winning, and who wins. The ducks cost £2.50 each and all proceeds will go to St Catherines Hospice, Derian House, and Cancer UK (Leyland).
Independent Living owner (Mark Booker) commented “as a former member of Leyland Rotary Club I am delighted to endorse this event. We have purchased a number of ducks. I know how much effort goes into this event. Along with the Leyland Festival and the Christmas Supermarket Collections it is a major annual fundraiser. Please go on the Leyland Rotary Club website and support the duck race.”
