Specsavers opticians and audiologists in Milton Keynes sponsored the annual duck race at the Newport Pagnell Carnival for the fifth year running.

The carnival, which has been running since 1961, took place on Saturday 8 July and Sunday 9 July across the Riverside Meadow.

The annual duck race is one of the highlights of the weekend. It has been running for five years and has had the support of Specsavers since its inception.

Supporting a huge community event

Callum Biggs, store director at Specsavers Hearing in Milton Keynes, said: ‘We are thrilled to have sponsored the duck race for the fifth year running. The carnival itself is a huge event in the local area and really brings the community together.

‘The duck race is a major part of the weekend itself, and it was great to see such a great turn out and everyone get really involved. The team also enjoyed meeting members of local community at the Specsavers stand at the carnival, where they were on hand to offer optical and hearing advice.

‘We are also thrilled to have raised £197.42 on the day from our Hearing Dog Collection cans and would like to thank everyone who donated.’
