Ey Up Mi Duck Race Update

Unfortunately this is the closest our ducks will get to the river this year

Sight Support Derbyshire are sad to say that the Ey Up Mi Duck Race will not be going ahead in Derby in 2021.

It takes a lot to get our ducks in a row, and while we are hopeful that COVID restrictions will continue to ease, it makes planning how we are going to run the event safely very difficult this year. To hold the race in June, as we normally do, we would have needed to start work in January, which was not possible.

So our ugly ducklings will have to hide themselves away for a little longer, but we don’t want to ruffle any feathers – watch this space for news of some virtual fundraising events that we hope you will get behind and continue to support the county and city’s charity for blind and partially-sighted adults and children!
