Well done to everyone who waddled with us on 8th May at the Storrington Village Duck Race

Raising a staggering £5792.43 for Storrington First School, the 2016 annual village Duck Race has been applauded as one of the best by everyone who came and the sun certainly did shine for the occasion.

Put on by the friends and family of Storrington First School alongside the ever-eager teachers and a fair few helpful pupils too, the day was a triumph of food, fun and feather flapping fast-ness as the Ducks raced for a place in the last race and the chance to win cash prizes.

Stealing the show as ever was the sizzling Dad’s BBQ where a record number of burgers and sausages were hand served to a never-ending queue of eager eaters happy to wait in line for a feast from the fathers.

The cake stall gave the BBQ a run for its money this year with the table struggling to take the weight of all the home made treats and tasties to put Mary Berry to shame….it seems Storrington really does have bakery talent.

“We are delighted with how everything went this year”, said the organising team.  “We would like to thank everyone involved, who helped in any capacity, and all those who came along to support us again this year.”  “All proceeds from the Duck Race will go to Storrington First School and it’s such a worthy cause supporting our children in their learning and development. It’s a delight to be able to create a fun day like this knowing how valued it is by the community. Roll on 2017….”
