Local vets are ramping up for the Duck Race

Arun Veterinary Group announces further ‘fun’draising efforts

Hundreds of pounds’ worth of prizes to be won

2 May 2017: One of the two star sponsors of the annual Storrington Duck Race, Arun Veterinary Group, today announced plans to welcome Duck Race enthusiasts to stop by the former Mill Stream Medical Centre in North Street on the day of the big race, 7th May.

Long term sponsors of the popular charity event that raises funds for Friends of Storrington School (FOSS), Arun Veterinary Group are kicking things up a notch this year with some additional ‘fun’draising efforts in the car park of the Mill Stream Medical Centre which is perfectly located alongside the stream.

Storrington resident and AVG owner Matt Gittings said, “We’ve been proud sponsors of the event for the last seven years and now that we’re planning to relocate our practice to the site right alongside the race, we saw it as the perfect opportunity to do a little bit extra on the day. The Duck Race is an event close to my heart as all my daughters are either currently attending, or have passed through the school. They’ve all benefited from using the school swimming pool and events such as this are vital to raising funds for its annual maintenance.”

“I’m glad the weather forecast is looking positive as every half hour between 12 and 2.30pm the AVG vets will be in the stocks taking wet sponges in the face for charity in our inaugural ‘Soak the Vet’ event. While you wait for your chance to pelt us, you can buy a £1 raffle ticket for a pet product hamper and get involved in our free prize draw to win a complimentary pet health club subscription for a year, worth up to £363.”

Arun Veterinary Group has a long history of charity and community involvement, details of which can be found on their website http://www.arunvetgroup.co.uk/about/charity-and-community-work/
