Event - Sponsored Duck Race
6 November 2012
On Wednesday 6th November 2012, Class 4 of The Pochin School, Barkby held a sponsored duck race in the local brook.
Each child named their duck and after a 'quacktical' talk they set off! Amid much excitement and enthusiasm, four separate heats were held and the overall winner was Bethan and her duck 'Yoko'!
The children were outstanding in their efforts to raise as much money as possible, taking collection boxes and buckets into the wider community and also baking and selling cakes. Overall they managed to raise an amazing £1004.62, something that both the children and Mr Johnson and Mrs King are very proud of!
