Ducks at the ready!

Islanders are in for a quacking good time at this year's annual Operation Goodwill Duck Race.
 
The Duck Race is an annual event for the Police charity, which has been around almost 50 years.
 
Through the charity, police officers and staff raise money for good causes and local charities.
 
The most well-known event is the annual Duck Race, which sees hundreds of yellow plastic ducks racing downstream at Sandybrook in St Lawrence.
 
This year the race will be held on Easter Saturday, March 30th. This ducks will hit the water at 2.30pm.
 
Aside from the duck race itself other charities will be represented with stalls along the walk.
 
All funds raised from the duck race itself will be donated to Robin Ward, in memory of Lauren Bree and Autism Jersey.
 
The tickets to sponsor a duck are on sale now for £2 at the Police Headquarters Enquiry Desk, the Autism Jersey shop in the Parade and at the Jersey Centre for Autism in Britannia Place.
 
Dr Helen Miles, Head of the Criminal Justice Department, said: "Every year the duck race is a great, fun event with lots of families coming down to take part.
 
"We hope this year will be just as successful as previous years and we will raise lots of money for two very important causes.
 
Operation Goodwill Jersey has also just launched its own Facebook page with details of the charity's events.
