Get your ducks for the Midas Plus Duck Race and support local charities.

On 30th June at Staines-upon-Thames Day MidasPlus are holding our flagship event, the Big Duck Race. The day usually attracts 7000-10,000 people.

I wondered whether you might support us by buying one or more ducks. Please see the video. The idea is to create a spectacle with around 200 decorated ducks floating down the river. They can be decorated anyway you want (provided you use acrylic/waterproof paint); it could be your company colours and logo, your favourite team or just a great design. See some examples; You could have competition amongst your staff or let your children have fun painting a duck!

 There is a prize of £100 for the best decorated duck judged by the Mayor on the day. Send us a photo of your decorated duck and we will publicise it on Facebook with a link to your page or website.

 The winner of the race receives dinner, overnight stay and breakfast for 2 people at the Runnymede on Thames Hotel + £500 for the charity of their choice.

 The ducks which are 32cms cost just £50 each. We can provide an invoice – they are tax deducktable and you get to keep the duck. It can be quite a talking point at the Reception or in the Board Room! Also you can re-enter next year at £25. Once paid we will deliver the duck to you, provided you’re not too far from Staines-upon-Thames.

 All of the funds we raise go directly to supporting local needy people. We are often their last resort!

Please help us by buying a big duck. Contact Mike Wylie, or 07803 706440.

 Thank you for your support.
