WORCESTER residents are being invited to go quackers for charity this Saturday when the city’s annual duck race returns to the River Severn.

The popular event, which is run by St Richard’s Hospice, will see rubber ducks race from Worcester Bridge, South Quay to the Cathedral.

Sponsored by Puddle Ducks and held in association with Worcester Festival, the event raised an impressive £1,625 last year for the Wildwood Drive hospice, which provides free specialist palliative care for patients living with life-limiting illnesses.

Small ducks cost £5, whilst large ducks cost £7 and a limited number of fancy dress ducks will be available for £25.

The winning ducks in the three categories will receive High Street vouchers and all proceeds from the event will go to St Richard’s Hospice.

The race starts at 2pm.
