Do you enjoy a bit of ‘quack’?

Scarva’s ducks have gone walkabout and Marie Curie charity need your help to find them.

On June 4 the Scarva Stroll to raise funds for Marie Curie returns for its 15th year with the added bonus of a children’s duck hunt along the Newry Canal Towpath.

Craigavon fundraising group member Jill Hawthorne said, “It’s always a fun day out but we’re hoping the duck hunt will have even more people flocking to Scarva this year.

“It’s a great opportunity to help support Marie Curie nurses in our community who provide care during the most difficult time families may face.”

The walk begins at 10.30am at the Scarva Visitors Centre. There are a number of walks a two, six or nine mile walk and there will be a reward for finding all six of the large plastic ducks along the two mile route.

There is a minimum fee of £10 per family taking part but but the charity would like everyone to raise as much sponsorship as possible for Marie Curie.
