London, Sept 8 (ANI): A record breaking 205,000 plastic ducks floated down the Thames on Sunday as part of the third annual Great British Duck Race in London.
The event shattered the previous record of 175,000 ducks in a similar race held in China earlier this year.
“The duck race is a fantastic opportunity to have some fun, raise some serious money for a range of good causes and have the chance to win 10,000 pounds, as well as take part in a Guinness World Record Attempt,” Mike Scott, the event’s managing director, was quoted by the Telegraph, as saying,
The gala held near Hampton Court Palace raised over 100,000 pounds for various charities.
Each blue duck that entered the 1km race was priced at 2 pounds will now be sent to recycling plant in North Shropshire.
The yet unknown owner of the winning duck will be given a prize money of 10,000 pounds. (ANI)
