Claire House Duck Race

It's quacking good fun!

We're going quackers!

You may have seen that over 10,000 blue rubber ducks have waddled their way onto display throughout World Museum. This is part of the annual Claire House Children's Hospice sponsored Duck Race and you can sponsor a duck by buying tickets at the museum.

Duck trail at the museum

We're also celebrating our part in the Duck Race with a fun duck trail around the museum:

You can alsosee photos of the ducks in the museum on our Flickr set.

Sponsor a duck

You can sponsor a duck for £2 and the ducks will then race, with an additional 30,000 ducks, on Saturday 7 July 2012 in the Leeds-Liverpool Canal at Pier Head.

You can buy tickets in the museum atrium from the Claire House volunteers. Each of the 40,000 ducks taking part is numbered and you will get a ticket with the number of your duck on it.
