Our Supporters & News News Fundraising News 2017 Manchester Duck Race The 8th annual Manchester Duck Race went off with a splash in Spinningfields and New Bailey on Good Friday. The weather was perhaps more suited for ducks but the clouds cleared after lunch and the ducks that 54 local companies had generously bought lined up for the first race of the day. The excitement was palpable as 4,000 individual ducks were launched off the bridge. This firm favourite in Manchester’s and Brainwave’s calendar can only come to fruition with the support of the local community and businesses. We are indebted to our main sponsor Bathroom Takeaway who once again went above and beyond expectations both financially and practically to support the event. We would also like to thank Waxi, Manchester’s water taxi and New Bailey for their support and sponsorship. Thank you to everyone involved – we raised a fantastic £20,000 and look forward to next year!
