You’d be Quackers to miss this opportunity

Laxey and Lonan Heritage Trust offer businesses the honour of winning the Island’s first “Bushy’s Senior TT Duck Day Race”.

Laxey and Lonan Heritage Trust have a treat in store for locals and visitors alike. Subject to licensing, the Trust will be offering a day of fun, food, music, beverages and novelty! 

For the first time ever Laxey will see two duck races. The day will kick off at midday, with the inaugural Bushy’s Senior TT Duck Race following shortly after. The Trust is offering 50 businesses and individuals the opportunity to watch their duck float across the finish line for bragging rights only. The money raised from each £200 duck sponsored will assist the Trust with the funds it needs to be able to continue the restoration and conservation work that is critical to keeping the Isle of Man’s heritage alive and present.

The Trust has already seen huge interest in the sponsored ducks with the likes of Standard Bank, Rossborough Group, MAC Financial and the Shed taking dibs on the first of our (un)feathered friends. If you and your business are interested in sponsoring a duck, please reach out to Nick Witcher (ngwitcher@gmail.com) who will provide you with the information you need to secure your place to the finish line!

Not a business? You can still get involved by entering the Junior TT Duck Race by purchasing your £2 duck tickets from various retailers across Laxey and Onchan, which will follow shortly after the Bushy’s Senior TT Duck Race.
