Spinningfields is hosting the Manchester Duck Race in aid of local children’s charity Brainwave, on April 2nd 2010.  The ducks will be released at 2pm along the Spinningfields stretch of the River Irwell between Irwell Street Bridge and finishing at Albert Bridge.

The GodelTech team are supporting the charity by purchasing a duck which, after some cosmetic changes will be participating in the race.

Our GodelDuck has its own twitter page and the GodelTech MD has said that if the GodelDuck can get 1000 Twitter followers by April 2nd GodelTech will double our donation to Brainwave.

The ducks will be collected at the end by fishing nets and rowers who will be strategically placed along the river.

Please note that no ducks will be harmed during this race.
