All 1500 ducks present and correct!

Kenilworth Lions have been getting ready again for this year’s Charity Duck Race, to be staged as usual through Abbey Fields on Boxing Day 26th December. The race starts at 12.00 noon at The Ford in front of Kenilworth Castle, and finishes about 15-20 minutes later by the Swimming Pool.

All 1500 numbered ducks have been counted carefully by Lions Club members, and placed in sealed containers ready to be released on the day.

Duck Race tickets have gone on sale to the public at all of the usual town businesses and premises, and at the two Kenilworth Light Switch-On events this weekend. They are also being sold outside the town’s two main supermarkets and at the Thursday market. And, of course, they will be available to buy on the day of the Race itself! Prizes of £100, £75, £50 and £25 to the holders of the four winning numbers.

The Race raises many thousands of pounds each year to help Kenilworth Lions support local charities and organisations. Please support us by buying your Duck Race tickets, and of course coming along to the Race on Boxing Day if you can. It’s part of what Christmas in Kenilworth is all about!
