As previously reported, 52Degrees agreed to sponsor a duck in the Grand Norwich duck race 2017, an event in aid of Norwich based Break, a charity that changes lives helping children, young people and their families across East Anglia. Mighty Duck didn’t do overly great on the day, securing last position.
Next up, the contenders (all 78 of them) were auctioned off at an event in the Maids head hotel, the competition was stiff with ‘Cornwall Energy’ attempting to buy every duck in sight. One duck went for £350! All in all, £6,500 raised for Break on the night, not bad for a few decorated ducks!
We’re pleased to announce we beat off the competition to secure Mighty Ducks return to 52Degrees ready for entry into the race next year. He’s promised us next year, the race is his.
Here he is enjoying a well earned drink with Lawrence and Ant, making new friends at the Norwich kitty networking group, who handily were over the road and 52Degrees are members of.
