The Great British Duck Race!

Many thanks to all who sponsored a duck for us at the Great British Duck Race, held at Hampton Court Palace on the 31st August!

Duck Day was a huge success for all of the 44 registered charities involved in the event, with 165,000 ducks raced in total -- a World Record! Despite the rain, almost 3,000 people attended the day to cheer on their ducks.

For a small charity such as ourselves, you bought an impressive 101 ducks :)
From each of these sales, a minimum of £1 came to LLTGL and a few lovely people popped in a bit more for us. You lot also raised a further £202 for the three nominated charities -
WaterAid, The Down's Syndrome Association and NSPCC.

In case you are dying to know who the winner of the £10,000 booty is.....
