As part of the recent Worcester Festival members of Worcester Lions Club ran a number of Duck Races during the Worcester Show. A total of 8 races took place many with the maximum number of ducks being purchased and taking part. Ducks that floundered were encouraged on there way by specially trained members of the club with a stick. The course of the races was along part of the Barbourne Brook which runs through the Gheluvelt Park in the city.
The clubs president Joy Haffner said, “That although not a lot of money had been raised by running the event, it had been an enjoyable day and once again it was an opportunity for the club to show it’s face in the community”. She also reminds that the club is in need of new member to enable them to carry on organising events such, and also providing direct support to individuals, groups and good causes in our community.
