Eastbury (virtual) Duck Races 2020

During the pandemic, 4LEGS Radio has been working hard to raise much needed funds for three local causes: Racing Welfare, Lambourn Riding for the Disabled and NAWT at Trindledown.

The first event was an on-line quiz hosted by a Sky Sports presenter and the second was six virtual Eastbury Duck Races Races on the River Lambourn fronted by a number of well known racing celebrities, jockeys and trainers from the sport. Lots of quacking fun (including a photo finish and parachute start) introduced by John Francome, Richard Hoiles, James Doyle, Matt Chapman, Jamie Osborne Racing, Oisin Murphy, in aid of Lambourn RDARacing Welfare and National Animal Welfare Trust Berkshire – sponsored by us, The Funghi ClubWalker LogisticsThe Great SheffordThe Plough EastburyJamie Osborne Racing, Trindledown and the Trustees of Lambourn RDA, organised by 4LEGS Radio’s Chris Capel and made possible by Graham White from The Plough.

We are pleased to announce that so far over £2,000 has been raised from these events and we’d like to thank everyone who’s supported them through sponsorship  donations. You can still make a donation in aid of the three great local causes here: justgiving.com/crowdfunding/lambournvalleycharitys 

4LEGS Radio intends to put on a third fundraising event for these 3 charities towards the end of the summer which we think people will enjoy. So watch this space!
