A SUCCESSFUL duck race has raised £900 for Pateley Bridge Millennium Green.

The annual event, held last Sunday, saw plastic ducks launched onto the River Nidd at Pateley Bridge, sponsored by members of the community.

The duck which reached the finishing line first won its owner £100, with other cash prizes awarded to those placing up to sixth.

The money raised will be used to maintain and improve the Millennium Green, for which Pateley Bridge Town Council acts as sole trustee. The Millennium Green Committee thanked everyone who helped make the event a success.

Winning entries were: First prize £100, number 869; second prize £50 number 209; third prize £25 number 793; fourth prize £10 number 878; fifth prize £10 number 99; sixth prize £5 number 245.
