BBC Sport’s Norfolk boy takes on a different kind of racing to Formula One
BBC Formula One presenter and Norfolk boy Jake Humphrey has given his backing to local charity Break's Grand Norwich Duck Race.
The charity plastic duck race is being held on Monday, August 29, from St George's Bridge downstream to Fye Bridge and ending up at the Ribs of Beef pub.
Break is hoping as many as 5,000 ducks will be released along with a host of artistically decorated larger ducks which will be purchased by businesses for �100.
The corporate ducks – including Mr Humphrey's – will then be auctioned at the Ribs of Beef on Thursday, September 8 to boost the fundraising.
You can enter a duck into the race by purchasing a raffle ticket for �2 from the Break charity shops on Unthank Road, Drayton Road, Dereham Road, Colman Road and Taverham or direct from Break.
