This race has been held over recent years with support from our main sponsor King Edward Court, and has enabled the Rotary Club of Windsor & Eton and Windsor & Eton Town Partnership to raise in excess of £30,000, for numerous charities and towards the cost of Christmas decorations in the town centre.

The winning prize for business ducks is boat hire for a day with a drinks and food hamper for 12 people. This is a great prize valued at over £600.00 and could be used to thank staff and/or entertain clients or customers.


Money raised so far has paid for new infrastructure for lights in St Leonards Road, lights for the main tree on Castle Hill and the main cross streets lights in Peascod Street and surrounding roads in the town centre. 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 at Christmas.
