Every year the Rotary Club of Swindon Old Town holds a Duck Race on May Bank Holiday, last year by selling Ducks our eClub raised £500 towards our funds.
The ducks appear in order to prepare for their purpose in life-to race against each other in the Swindon’s Famous Duck Race. This annual event, held on May Bank Holiday, culminates in the ducks racing desperately against each other for the ultimate prize of winning. Locals are so fascinated by this spectacle that, for weeks beforehand, they adopt a duck for £1. The money collected goes to a variety of good causes and brings benefits to many. These are truly remarkable ducks.
