Tadcaster Duck Race 2015

Tadcaster Swimming Pool Annual Duck Race
Saturday 26th September 2015. 12 noon – 4pm.
On the Tadcaster riverbank




This annual event is a major fundraiser for the Tadcaster Swimming Pool Trust.

It is now entering its 8th year and forms a focal part of life in the community.

Many local community groups participate by having a stall and raising funds for their own cause.

Please contact Fiona Garnett, at the pool if you would like a stall for your own local charity

3000 numbered tickets are sold at a cost of £1 for anyone to participate. Each ticket relates to a numbered plastic duck which is then launched from the viaduct into the River Wharfe.

These tickets are now on sale at the swimming pool.

The money raised will go towards buying new Resuscitation equipment for staff training sessions

As part of the Tadcaster Pool Annual Duck Race, the Trust would now like to invite local businesses to participate in this community event by sponsoring a larger corporate coloured duck at a cost of £20.

A list of sponsors will be published prior to and at the event

These larger ducks will be launched into the river at the same time as the main event with the profile of all businesses raised through advertising on the event site.

As an incentive for businesses to participate, we will be offering 1 year’s free advertising for the winner on our television screens at the pool.

If you would like to purchase a corporate duck or would like to run a stall for your charity please e mail me
