Participants are being sought to enter the ‘Great Melton Duck Race’ which raised around £4,000 last year.

The Rotary Club of Melton Mowbray will be holding the event at Twinlakes on Sunday, April 3.

Profits from the day will go towards rotary charities, with the main beneficiary of this year’s event being the annual Kids Out event which sees local rotarians taking deserving children to a leisure park for a day.

Ducks are available to purchase online at £1.50. All ducks are pre-numbered and numbers will be sent out via email or can be bought at Twinlakes from March 21.

The race starts at 1.30pm and there will be a cash prizes of £75 for first place, £50 for second place and £25 for third place. For more details visit http://meltonrotary.org.uk/DuckRace/
