Winner of Great Ayton Duck Race

Derek Dryden of Gale and Phillipson, sponsor of the Great Ayton Duck Race 2016 presented the cheque for £100 to Tina Watson, the winner of the race with duck number 315.

 

A few years ago, Herriot Hospice Homecare cared for Tina’s sister in the last few weeks of her life. Tina said that over the years her sister really enjoyed watching duck races and she believes that she was there in spirit cheering their duck across the winning line.

 

Our thanks go to Tina for donating her winnings back to our hospice, Gales and Phillipson for sponsoring our Duck Race and everyone who purchased a duck race ticket or supported our Great Ayton Open Gardens over the weekend of 9th & 10th July.

 

Despite the rain showers on the Saturday, the Great Ayton Open Gardens and Duck Race raised £3271.15. Thank you for your support.
