Lechlade Duck Race is proud to have created a large following from the general public, and the resounding success and growth of the event is from the support of the local community and the families who travel to attend the Duck Race from the Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire areas. Around 6,000 people attend the event and we are keen to continue growing this number year on year.
As a result of achieving such a fantastic turnout we have raised over £40,000 so far for charities including the Royal Air Force’s Association, the Cotswold Water Park Trust and the Lechlade Memorial Hall refurbishment.
This fun, family friendly event is organised and run by a fantastic and dedicated team of volunteers, a large contingent of whom come from RAF Brize Norton in Carterton, Oxfordshire. All volunteers give up their time for free and approach this event in a truly professional way. Last year the event cost us over £6,000 to run and wouldn’t have happened without the support of local businesses.
We would very much like to work with more local businesses that wish to promote what they do through the ‘good news story’ of our event.
