The 2017 Alresford Duck Race is going to be held on Sunday 18th June, and the Alresford Pigs Association would love you to be a part of it. The Race is one of our main fund raising events and is also lots of fun for all involved. Your support will ensure that the operating costs are underwritten and all the profits are directed to local, worthy causes.
The 2015 Duck Race was without a doubt a record breaking year with over 2000 people passing through the gates to enjoy the day. The amazing weather also helped with the proceedings. Our main sponsor is once again Hydrotech Services Limited, and the event will be held at the Weir House by kind permission of George & Janette Hollingbery. We are now seeking Duck Owners and Race Sponsors. Duck Owners will have a duck allocated to them along with a suitable entry in the programme. Race sponsors will get a special mention in the race card and via the race commentary. There are also advertising opportunities within the race programme and banners within the grounds.
The cost of duck ownership is remaining at £75 and the cost of race sponsorship is also remaining at £125. Due to the hazardous going, and nature of the course, the number of ducks is limited, so first come, first served. The Duck Race Programme will be bigger and better than ever this year with advertising opportunities on quarter, half or full pages.
If you can support the Duck Race this year, we now have a dedicated website where you can book your sponsorship advertising online. Just head for www.alresfordduckrace.co.uk for full details. You can pay online (preferred) or request Cheque payment and we’ll contact you after your booking to arrange this.
If you have any questions regarding sponsorship or advertising, please call Oliver Wilson-Barnes on 07801-821378. Thank you for your support.
