Ducks survive dook

Last weekend saw the return of the much-anticipated Glass Duck Race, where participants eagerly watched as rubber ducks raced down the burn, vying for the top spots and fantastic prizes.

One of the standout moments of the day was when Sylvia, beaming with delight, was presented with the first prize of £50 for her duck’s outstanding performance in the race. The competition was fierce, and Sylvia’s triumphant victory was met with cheers and applause from the supportive crowd.

Second place was secured by Dianne Scott, and it was Jenny who sold the winning ticket.

The excitement didn’t stop there, as the third prize went to Ellie, whose ticket was sold by Margo.

Unfortunately, neither Ellie nor Dianne were present to collect their prizes, but their achievements were celebrated nonetheless.

The event was a resounding success, with everyone coming together to enjoy a wonderful afternoon despite the looming threat of rain. Laughter, friendly conversations, and the joy of community camaraderie filled the air, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere that encapsulated the spirit of Glass.

None of this would have been possible without the dedication and hard work of the event organizers and helpers who were too many to mention. A special mention goes to Eoin Harrold for generously providing his telehandler, which played a crucial role in transporting the rubber ducks safely to the starting line for the race.

In total we made £447.82 from the event, and we would like to thank everyone for buying tickets and for their kind donations on the day. This money will go towards upgrading the new kitchen with an accessible workspace for the children from Glass Primary.
