Haddow Bathroom and Kitchens provided a bumper prize pot for a high-profile charity duck race that took place recently on the River Tay.
The business, who are part of the Haddow Group, were delighted to be supporting their local community by pledging £600 of prize money for the event, providing the owners of the first three ducks with £300, £200 and £100 each. Craig McMillan, Haddow Bathroom and Kitchen Showroom Manager presented 1st place winner Iain Baird with his prize.
2,000 rubber ducks were released and recaptured on the River Tay in what is thought to have been the largest duck race ever to take place on the river. The fun event raised over £5500 to ensure eleven local young people can take up their places at the 2023 World Scout Jamboree in South Korea as well as raising money for The Teenage Cancer Trust.
The presentation took place at the 10th Perthshire Scout Hall in Perth.

Stephen Gorton, Explorer Scout Leader and Duck Race organiser said “We are thrilled to have raised a great amount. It was such a fun event, bringing people into Perth. We’re grateful to everyone that bought a ticket and Haddow Bathroom and Kitchens whose sponsorship meant the money raised went to support the young people.”
Craig McMillan added “We’re very much a local business and we’re very pleased to support these young people in their adventure.”
