Duck Race Appeal to HX7 Businesses
Calling all duck fans...
If you're a business in the HX7 area and you have any duck-related products to sell (definitely not the sentence I thought I'd be typing today...) The Rotary Club of Hebden Bridge wants to hear from you!
The excellent annual Easter Monday Duck Race is coming up and this year it's virtual (listen to The Rotary Club's own Roger Benn talking about it in an exclusive interview with Guy Parry in the link below) and this year the theme is Totally Quakers <insert duck noise here>
The club intends to offer fun duck-themed items for sale on its website, anything from t-shirts, to face masks, puppets, egg cups - if you sell anything duck related then get in touch with Roger Benn from the club at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you aren't a duck-themed business, then don't forget you can find out more information, buy tickets for the main race and business race at: https://www.hebdenbridgeduckrace.uk/
See you there, it's going to be a quacker (sorry)!
