The Great British Duck Race
A yellow duck among some of the estimated 250, 000 other blue plastic ducks which filled a 1km stretch of the River Thames near Hampton Court Palace, London, during the Great British Duck Race. Now in it's second year the race raises money for charities including the Downs Syndrome Association, WaterAid and the NSPCC. It costs 2 to enter a duck and the owner of the blue duck that passes the finish line first wins 10, 000 in prize money.
