Duck race raises thousands of Pounds for charity

The traditional Boxing Day duck race in Bibury raised around 2,200 for the Samaritans and HomeStart.

The event has been organised by Bibury Cricket Club for 15 years and Steve Turner, the club secretary, said this year's event was the best yet.

Two races were held, the first one for the cricket club, the second for charity (the charities to benefit were chosen by race winner Sarah Mais).
