There are three levels of support:
You can show your support for the duck or ducks of your choice and help them access valuable training techniques, tips and nutrition by making a donation on this page and naming your duck in the message box. Everyone who sponsors the winning duck will be entered into a raffle to win our amazing prize - two nights midweek glamping at the superb Ashdown Forest Adventure Activity Club, including a stand up paddle boarding session for 2 people. The duck who raises the most money will also be awarded a prize so be sure to mention their name in the message box when you donate.
Suggested donation: £2 per duck, or if you want to hedge your bets, donate £20 for all 12 and write FULL HOUSE in the message box.
In the weeks leading up to the race itself, our ducks are looking for all the training tips, coaching and nutritional advice they can get. Do you have or know a small business who can help? If you can offer advice, practical help or just a chance for a bit of valuable 'me-time' for our ducks as they quack on with their gruelling training, we can offer you a promotional post across social media and local news showcasing your business, and how you have helped your duck. For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Suggested donation: £20 per duckdate.
What you get: As a coaching sponsor, you will take your duck under your wing and we will record your duck's journey, every paddle of the way as you coach them towards victory! At least three promotional duck-dates are included, and if your duck should win the race
Email email@example.com for more information.
Suggested donation: £50 per duckdate
The highest placed duck allocated to a school class will also win ice lollies, and their teacher will have to wear the Amusing Duck Hat for a day. Should the teachers' duck win... that's right, it's the teachers who get lollies and Mr Alexander gets The Hat.
