THE GREAT BRITISH DUCK RACE.


Wonderful bit of fun at Molesey Locks yesterday, what I would call typically British. Sponsored by Bath Store you could participate by "buying" a duck and enter the race with some other 249,999 others. A great sea of plastic ducks floating downstream to Albany Reach, a distance of 1Km. First past the post wins £10,000! All proceeds are for charity some £500,000. Downs Syndrome being a major recipient.

Race was started by Emma Barton (Honey, Eastenders) and Andy Hodge. Took the opportunity to photograph Andy Hodge's gold medal he won in the Coxless pairs at the Beijing Olympics.

Miserable day but a great event.
