Duck Race for World Schools Orienteering Championships

On Wednesday April 8th a small band of children and adults descended on Gleaston village green for the biennial Duck Race. The purpose of this was to raise money to send seven pupils to compete at the World Schools Orienteering Championships in Anatalya, Turkey on April 18th – 24th. Many thanks to everyone who bought a ticket as we raised an impressive £785. The winners were:

  • 1st prize: Ticket number 679 Becks Hodgson sold by Tilly
  • 2nd prize: Ticket number 507 Sophie Wilson sold by Fiona
  • 3rd prize: Ticket number 863 Mike Cunningham sold by Ms Lomas
  • and the Last Duck Home prize was ticket number 468 Margaret Lawrence sold by Miss Evans
