2,500 ducks race down Porter Brook for charity

The annual Great Sheffield Duck Race took place in Endcliffe Park.  The 2,500 rubber ducks all make a dash for the finish line over a 600 yard course.  The ducks all have numbers written underneath them and over 6,000 people bought one of the numbers.  If your duck is one of the first 40 to cross the finish line then you win a prize.  Last year the race raised £9,000 for the restoration of Forge Dam.  This year the money raised will also go to the clearing up of Forge Dam.
