The team at Specsavers Stratford upon Avon are celebrating following their victory in the 2018 Rotary Shakespeare Corporate Duck Race.

Staff at the store all got behind this year’s race which raised £3,500 for the children and young person’s services at The Shakespeare Hospice. On the back of their win, the team will now hold the valued trophy for the next 12 months.

Great event

The Rotary Evening Group who organise the race are very grateful to its sponsors: Lodders, Ale House and Puddle Ducks, The Boat Club, Sea Cadets and Avon Boating who helped on the river and, of course, everyone who buys a duck and contributes to the event which raises funds to support The Shakespeare Hospice.

If anyone is interested in helping with next year’s event, please email your details to or to find out more about The Shakespeare Hospice please visit
