Last Sunday was the Maldon Mud Race. Our Carnival court was lending a helping hand by giving out the blankets at the finish line. A muddy job but the court really enjoyed the task.
Our next fundraising event will be on the 19th of May. The Carnival will be having a Duck Race on the canal (River Blackwater) at the back of Tesco. We will be at Tesco’s in Maldon on Saturday the 18th May where you are able to sponsor a Duck for just £1.00. The person who sponsors the winning duck will receive a special prize from the Chief Quacker. Every person who sponsors a duck will receive a sponsorship certificate to keep.
