Llanidloes Junior Football Club raised £4,000 during a Duck Race/Presentation/Fun Day held earlier in the summer.

Having sold 1,400 ducks, they were released from Shortbridge on 24 June and eventually got down to Longbridge.

The winning duck belonged to junior club member and keen footballer Thomas Williams, who said the prize of £100 “will be spent on Lego”.

The large crowd then moved down to the football club for the presentations. All 240 boys and girls received a medal and the over-10s received trophies for Coaches’ Player of the Year and the Most Improved Player.

Chairman Andrew Turner thanked Amy Jones and the committee for organising the event which raised over £4,000.
