You’ve seen the Olympics in London – now see the Berkhamsted duck race, being held outside of The Rising Sun pub on Sunday.

It costs £1 to give your support to a duck – and you’ll get a £60 prize if it wins, £30 if it comes second and £10 if it comes third.

The Grand Union Canal challenge begins at 6pm and all funds raised will go to Berkhamsted’s Swan Youth Centre.

To learn more, phone youth centre coordinator Clare Muir on 01442 384349.

She said: “We have 1000 bath ducks with numbers on and it’s a great event.

“No ducks will be hurt during this event!”
