Bridgnorth Duck Race 2024 - The Results

 

Thank you to the hundreds of spectators who lined the Riverside and Bridge in Low Town to witness the spectacle that was this year’s Duck Race.

And a spectacle, it certainly was.

1200 ducks serenely floating past our four Specialist Duck Extractors, who could only watch in dismay as our little yellow friends bobbed under the Bridge and headed off towards Quatford, Hampton Loade and beyond.

But we are truly grateful to the three volunteers from Bridgnorth Canoe Club who spent the next three hours extracting scores of little ducks (and quite a few Big Duck) from the riverbanks.

We suspect a few might just have got away. So, if you see any, take a quick snap and send it into The Lions, telling us where they are. We will send out our Quack Search & Rescue Team to bring them home safely. And there might just be a prize for the strangest location.

Despite a few stray Duck’s, we’re pleased to announce the winners of this year’s race, or Duccaneers, as we like to call them.

First Place – 471

Second Place – 723

Third Place – 118

We will be contacting the lucky winners over the next few days to arrange a Prize Giving Meet Up.

Thank you to everyone who bought a duck this year, to those who helped on the day (a special shout out to Chris from Middle Severn Angling in Low Town), and anyone who stopped by to watch our little event.

See you again next year.

Lions Walk & Marathon Logo Longer

Thank You for Making It

Such A Special Day

We’d like to thank everyone who took part, supported, or helped organise this year’s Bridgnorth Walk & Marathon.

It was the most successful ever, with over 1000 competitors across the six events. The weather was fantastic, and the atmosphere at both venues was just brilliant.

We’re still checking, but we estimate, this year the event will have raised almost £100,000 for a wide range of charities. So, be really proud of what you’ve achieved.

 

We’re Already Thinking About The Next One…..

You won’t be surprised to learn, it takes many months of planning and organising each event. So, it won’t be long before we start again for 2025. We want to make next year even bigger and better (if that’s possible!).

So thank you, and see you next year……

Since 1976

Bridgnorth Lions

Have been serving our local community.

You will have seen or heard our name around the town and district already, but do you know who we are and what we do?

Bridgnorth Lions Club is made up of a group of like-minded men and exists to help those in the community who are disadvantaged or in need of help. Since 1976 we have raised hundreds of thousands of pounds, all from around Bridgnorth and the surrounding area, and every penny has been used to help those less fortunate than ourselves.

One again Bridgnorth Lions are organising a PSA Testing Event for local men. Prostrate Cancer is the most common cancer amongst men, affecting 1 in 8 over their lifetime. More than 52,000 men are diagnosed every year on average – that’s 144 men every day.

Early detection is essential in helping diagnose the condition. A simple two-minute blood test is all it takes.
