'Quackers' bank manager organises duck race for charity

More news, no ads


These include a rubber duck race on the Kennet and Avon Canal in April, a Sound of Music sing-along evening at the Corn Exchange, Newbury, in May, and a trek up Kilimanjaro in August.
Andy Pocock (pictured right) will be joined by a few friends, including Ellen and Faye Selby, both from Newbury, in his quest to raise £10,000 for Scope.
The first event, the rubber duck race, scheduled for April 8, will involve 250 tagged ducks being dropped into the canal from Bridge Street. Sponsoring a duck will cost £5 and the owner of the duck which makes it over the finishing line at The Wharf first, will receive £300. The slowest duck will earn £50, but Mr Pocock said that anyone seen attempting to weigh down their entries would be disqualified.
He has also laid down the gauntlet to other bank managers in the area, challenging them to join him in the stocks in Market Place for another event, the date for which has yet to be set.
