Charities for 2023

Every year we make a donation to two charities from the profits of the Duck Derby races.

The charities that will benefit from the 2023 races are:-

West Berks Foodbank

We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide seven days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.

St Michael’s Hospice

St. Michael’s Hospice was established in 1991 by a committee led by former Mayor, Margaret Weston. Their mission was simple, to offer a choice and understanding of complex conditions in the dying.
