Dustyn Molver from the Guernsey Round Table said: ‘We were absolutely amazed to discover that the two winning duck entries were from a brother and sister. We lined all the ducks up and with the names of the entrants written on the base of the ducks, we have no idea who has decorated each duck until we pick the winners and then turn the ducks over to get the contact details. We received some very impressive entries that aptly celebrate RBC’s 10th year of supporting the Harbour Carnival. Both Luke and Ciara’s entries truly capture the birthday theme and the materials they used were very creative.
‘As part of his prize, Luke, who has just finished Year Five at Castel Primary School, will not only officially open Harbour Carnival but he has also won a sailing experience on the Model Yacht Pond with the Guernsey Sailing Trust for him and his classmates. Ciara has won herself a bumper pack of art materials. We are grateful to the schools, nurseries and young people who took part this year as all the money raised will go towards our 2017 fundraising pot.’
Lisa Barnett from sponsors, RBC Wealth Management, said: ‘This year certainly feels like a celebration of our support of the Harbour Carnival with thanks, in large, to this year’s outstandingly decorated ducks. Over the course of the last decade, more than 15,000 mini ducks have been sold with 175 local charities and organisations benefitting by over £162,000 raised at the event. This is a wonderful testament to all the organisers, participants and volunteers that make the Harbour Carnival happen.’
