£30 – Second place
£20 – Third place

To enter, please visit the Duck Race Store You can back a single duck for £2 or you can back six ducks for £10. All money raised will go to the 1st Welwyn Scout Group and will be used towards purchase of much needed equipment for the young people, e.g. camping equipment, pioneering poles etc.

The race will take place at the end of the Welwyn fun day at Singler’s Marsh on Saturday 29th June 2024. This is typically at around 4:45pm after the main raffle has been drawn. Please come and support the 1st Welwyn scout Group and cheer your ducks along.
