The Greatest (Duck) Race on Earth!


Following on from the jubilant celebrations in Windsor Town last week we are following this up with the great race held in Windsor on the 25 June. The annual Royal Windsor Duck Race takes place on the River Thames on Saturday 25 June 2022 and we are looking for your support in sponsoring ‘business duck(s)’ for the day.

With the support from our main partners Windsor Yards, the Rotary Club of Windsor & Eton and Windsor & Eton Town Partnership this race has raised over £60,000 for numerous charities and support the towns Christmas decorations.

Business ducks are only £30 each (we only have 100 available – so your odds on winning are better that the national lottery). We ask for businesses to sponsor a minimum of four ducks (but if you only want to sponsor one that is fine). We will also have a number of special Queen Elisabeth Platinum ducks for those businesses who sponsor 10 or more ducks - you will get this extra themed duck for free (there are only 7 of these available so these will be issued on a first come first serve basis)

As a sponsor your business will be promoted throughout the day to the many thousands of people who attend the Town Centre annual Summer Fair.

The winning prize for business ducks is a day out on the river with a drinks and food hamper for 12 people. Valued at over £600.00 this is a great prize to thank your staff or entertain clients or customers. The first platinum duck that crosses the line a state of the art Sound Bar system is up for grabs for the winning business.

Money raised so far has paid for new infrastructure and additional lights in Peascod Street and for the projector used to display the internationally acclaimed images seen on Windsor Castle Wall in 2014..

If you have a business located in the town we ask you especially to support this event to make sure we are able to continue to create an attractive shopping environment for all.

By supporting us you will be:

1) Helping raise money to extend and improve Windsor and Eton’s Christmas lighting Scheme.

2) Help raise money for charities across the borough ,

3) Participating in Windsor’s most popular riverside event.

4) In for a chance of winning a great prize for you, your staff and clients.
