This years annual Mayor’s Duck Race was hosted at Tees Barrage to conclude Armed Forces Week as part of Stockton on Tees Borough Council’s range of events to support our Armed Forces community and to celebrate the work they do at home and abroad.
Hundreds of little yellow ducks were let loose down the white water course on the morning of Friday 29th June in order to raise money for the charities helping wounded soldiers. The glorious weather set a lovely scene of yellow ducks bobbing down the course as they took on the rapids.
Prizes were awarded for the first ten small ducks and the first three larger, corporate ducks over the finishing line.
It was a great morning down at The Barrage raising a significant amount of money for a great cause in a light hearted manor.
