Break Charity Duck Race Auction Success
We were pleased to host the Charity Auction on the evening of 13 August, following Break Charity’s Grand Norwich Duck Race, which had been staged on the River Wensum earlier in the month. The auction raised £5,500 for Break.
Genevieve Plunkett, who was the hotel’s Duty Manager on 13 August is pictured with her duck Sparky, which she purchased at the auction. The duck was entered in the race by Saffron Housing Trust. Genevieve explains: “There were 55 ducks in the Minstrel Suite, including our own duck Crumbs. The auction was great fun and I quickly decided that I would really rather like a duck to take home, so started bidding. It was a good night and we were raising money for an excellent local charity. I was very pleased to get Sparky, who is now my ‘guard duck’ at home!”
