Once again our little yellow friends will be returning to the waters of the River Itchen in this year's annual Roverang Quacky Races. The race will be held on Wednesday 4th April during Roverang show week. The race will start at 11:00am from the footbridge by the White Swan Pub in Mansbridge and will finish at roughly 12:30pm on the straight of water before Woodmill. The sponsor of the winning duck will receive a cash prize of £50.00!
This year we'd love to make the duck race even bigger and better than it’s been over the last 3 years, but to do that we'll need your help. Ducks can be sponsored for £3 each, and the more we sell, the bigger and more spectacular our race will be. Simply choose how many Ducks you'd like to sponsor, from the drop down menu below, then Pay via PayPal. Don't worry if you don't have a PayPal account, simply checkout as a "guest". Please note: a small charge has been added to each duck to cover PayPal's fees.
We're also going to be trialing a new idea for Quacky Races, by introducing VID's (Very Important Duck's). These are larger ducks which will be uniquely identifiable (designs will be allocated at random) and can be sponsored at a premium rate of £7 per duck. Just like our other ducks, after the race the VID’s will remain the property of Quacky Races and Roverang. VID's will be added to the water mixed in with our other yellow ducks so although they won’t have any advantage in the race, their sponsor WILL be able to easily identify them throughout. If you would like one of our VID's, please select the VID option from the drop down menu.
We can also accept sponsorship money in cash, if this is preferred. Correct money can be taken to Roverang rehearsals (in a sealed envelope) or dropped to either Bitterne or Sholing (please email roverang.fundraising[at]gmail.com for addresses)
This year we're trying to streamline the sponsoring process even further, so duck numbers won't be allocated until the week before the race. Sponsors will still receive a confirmation email once their payment has made its way to Quacky HQ.
As always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. The Quacky Races Fundraising team can be contacted on the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
