Cuckoo gets creative for The Manchester Duck Race!

7th April 2017

Manchester Duck Race

It’s that time of year again and Cuckoo will soon be sending our own extra special contender to take part in the race of all races!

Around 25,000 visitors will descend on the River Irwell on Good Friday – with families and friends getting together in support of Brainwave and taking part in the 8th annual Manchester Duck Race!
The event takes place around the Spinningfields and New Bailey area and costs as little as £1 to enter your own feathered (well, plastic) friend!
All proceeds will go to Brainwave, a local children’s charity who work hard to help youngsters who’ve suffered with brain injuries across the country.
In support of this incredible cause, our talented team have created our own super stylish silver duck to take on the challenge.
Inspired by the rubber duck being immortalised in silver as the latest Monopoly board token, we not only painted our slightly oversized contestant – we also crafted a miniature Monopoly man to ride our duck to victory!
Come and see how our extra special entrant gets on or join in the fun for yourself!
