Doune DuckDoune Gala Duck Race – Sunday 16th June

The ducks will make their way down the Ardoch Burn to The Pier, starting at 12pm. First, second and third prizes of £50/£30/£20 with lots of runners-up prizes and a booby prize for the last duck past the line! Great prizes, great fun – “ducks” for sale at the library or on Gala Day.

The whole event is organised by Doune Gala Committee. The main purpose of the Gala is to raise money to give our senior citizens a Christmas party, but it also costs a fair bit to run the event every year!

Gala Day provides the opportunity for many local groups and businesses to raise funds for their own specific causes whilst giving everyone in the village a fun day out!
