What is the duck race?!
The Duck Race is Roundabout preschool’s biggest annual fundraiser. Everyone is welcome and we are looking forward to sharing a really fun afternoon with you! We have a range of stalls for the children to play at, including a decorate a duck competition, hook a duck, lucky dip and much more! This year for the first time, we are giving every preschool child a voucher which will entitle them to one free go on one stall. We hope you come along and join in the fun!
The main event is when we fling the ducks!
Ahead of the day we have ducks ‘on sale’ at preschool and also around the village. This means that people pay £1 to put their name against a duck. The ducks are then all flung from a giant catapult and the furthest ducks win a prize.
This year we have some fantastic prizes up for grabs including vouchers for Palfrey & Hall, The Filling Station, Ruby & The Angel, Simply Stylish to name a few.
You can buy as many ducks as you like to increase your chances of winning!
We will also have a raffle on the day with more brilliant prizes, refreshments on offer as well as a burger van for those who are a bit hungrier!
We really appreciate your support at this event and use the money raised to pay for the summer trip for the children. This year we will also use the funds to begin the transfer to online learning journeys using Tapestry.
It is a real community affair!
We are lucky to have the local fire service helping us on the day to fling the ducks as well as bringing along the fire engine! We also have a tractor visiting which the children can sit in. A number of other groups in the village also run stalls on the day, including Rainbows, Guides and Debenham Parent and Toddler group. This makes the Duck Race an essential event, not only to show your support for the Debenham community but to find out more about what is available for your children locally.
The committee and preschool staff look forward to seeing you there and sharing an exciting afternoon with you and your families!
