In Great Britain traditional rubber ducks races were held. 2 thousand participants took place in these races.
The audience was able to bet on this or that duck, and all proceeds have gone to the charitable purposes.
The competition took place in English village Bibury and thousands of Englishmen came here to enjoy the racing, as UPI informs. 150 stuffed decoy ducks and 2000 of yellow rubber ducks took place in this competition. To bet on a decoy duck it was possible with a £10 ($12) bet and on a yellow rubber duck - £1 (about $1,2).
All proceeds during the duck racing have been transferred on the charitable purposes. At the same time the organization for donations was chosen by the show-goer whose duck finished the first.Rubber ducks races take place everywhere. The record rubber ducks racing has taken place in 2009 in London where more than 250 thousand ducks have participated in competition. In Singapore one of the show-goers has bet on a duck that has won the race, and he received 1 million Singapore dollars (about $700 thousand at current rate).
