ON YOUR MARKS… DUCK RACE RETURNS VIA LIVE STREAM TO RAISE FUNDS FOR ASPIRE RYDE

A virtual duck race is to be held to raise vital funds for Aspire Ryde, with COVID scuppering plans to bring back the annual event for spectators.

Last year’s race was cancelled entirely due to the pandemic, but this year the race will go ahead – just without crowds lining the riverbank.

1,000 plastic ducks – sponsored for £1 each – will be travelling downstream as part of a fundraiser for Aspire Ryde. The first duck across the line will secure a £50 prize for its sponsor!

The race will be shown on Aspire’s Facebook page on Saturday 3rd April.

Aspire are continuing to help the Island community throughout the pandemic with good work including helping with Foodbank, prescription collection, delivery of food and supporting those that are lonely.
