ONE or two little yellow ducks might be enjoying a journey out to sea, but Port Macquarie Lions Club has managed to net more than $9000 for its annual Duck Race fundraiser.
The event was held on Kooloonbung Creek in Port Macquarie on Sunday, April 11.
The proceeds will be shared between three worthy local causes - Endeavour House, Hastings Education Fund and Marine Rescue.
Rob Moorehead took out the community duck race while Harelec won the business event.
The race has been an Easter holiday feature event for the last 21 years.
Lions president Mark Youngblutt said despite the challenges faced by the community over the last 12 months, the generosity shown toward the fundraiser and its three worthy recipients has been heart-warming.
"I'm blown away by the generosity of business houses particularly after all they have been through, they can still dig deep," Mr Youngblutt said.
