Taranaki Duck Race and BBQ Fundraiser
New Zealand Red Cross is hosting our 4th annual Duck Race & BBQ Fundraiser in New Plymouth.
We will release 600 Red Cross rubber ducks down the Huatoki Stream all the way to Puke Ariki Landing from 11am.
This is a fun family event where lots of spot prizes will be handed out as well as prizes for the first three ducks to finish, the lucky last duck, whānau duck, wacky hair duck plus many more!
Hire one duck for $5 or three ducks for $10.
There will be a BBQ with $2 sausages and an ice cream machine with $2 ice creams so remember to bring some cash on the day. There will also be children's face painting and a children's human duck race for kids under 12 to take part in.
All our tickets to hire ducks sold out last year so get in quick to secure yours now. They are available from the Red Cross Taranaki Service Centre at 116 Gill Street or order by phone (06 759 4697) or via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All money raised goes towards New Zealand Red Cross to help vulnerable people in our communities both here and around the world.
