Jennifer Ellison signs Liverpool Duck as Corporate Duck Race approaches
This week TV actress, television personality and professional dancer kicked off a series of Celebrity Duck Signings.
The signing took place against the backdrop of the iconic Museum of Liverpool and will help contribute towards raising money for Macmillan.
To raise money for Macmillan, the piece will be auctioned in July. The ‘Construction Duck’ has now received celebrity status and will continue to host a range of celebrity signatures.
In addition, AquaDucked, organisers of the successful Liverpool Duck Trail launched last week are looking for businesses across Merseyside to take part in a Corporate Duck Race, also to be held in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
The Corporate Duck Race will held on the 7th June at 10.30am during the International Mersey River Festival (5-7th June) at Pier Head Canal Link where all the Corporate Ducks will be dropped into the water in a waddle to the finish line!
Each business will be given a large rubber duck to be decorated to their liking – whether this is branded with corporate logos, in a theme of their business practice, or just for fun. There will be prizes given for the best dressed duck, as well as a prestigious trophy to the winning duck.
Barry Cole, Managing Director of AquaDucked said:
“We are overwhelmed by the popularity of the Liverpool Duck Trail since it’s opening last week and we hope that people across the city will support us in forthcoming activities we have planned. We encourage all business to take part in the Corporate Duck race, not only will you be supporting a fantastic cause, you’ll also benefit from improving your business profile in a fun and exciting way! ”
The Liverpool Corporate Duck Race mirrors the popular annual Spinningfields, Manchester where hundreds of decorated ducks raised money for a charitable cause.
A number of Liverpool Business have already signed up to race their rivals including Wongs Jewellers, The Racquet Club Hotel, Marks and Spencer’s Liverpool, and Aintree based Game of Thrones ice-set designers, Glacial Art Ice Sculptors.
The closing date for corporate entries is 1st June 2015.
