Rubber duck race in Newbury today (Sunday)

More news, no ads


As many as 250 tagged, sponsored ducks will be dropped into the canal by Natwest manager Andy Pocock and two of his friends.
Sponsoring a duck will cost £5 and the owner of the winning duck will receive £300. The slowest duck will earn £50, but Mr Pocock said anyone seen attempting to weigh down their entries would be disqualified.
The money raised will go to Scope.
Mr Pocock is well-known for his mad-cap charity fundraising schemes and is planning a range of events to raise funds for charity.
These include a trek up the one and only snow-capped mountain in Africa, Kilimanjaro in August and a Sound of Music sing-along evening at the Corn Exchange in May.
Mr Pocock will be joined by a few friends, including Ellen and Faye Selby, both from Newbury, in his quest to raise £10,000 for Scope.
He has also laid down the gauntlet to other bank managers in the area, challenging them to join him as he is placed in stocks on the Market Square in Newbury, left at the mercy of the public.
