Attleborough Amateur Boxing Club is going quackers and organising a grand Easter duck race on Good Friday.

Up to 1,000 plastic birds will be raced along the river with people invited to sponsor and name a duck for �1.

It could see a Donald or Daffy going beak to beak with Ricky Hatton or Mike Tyson as they bob down the course on April 10, with the top prize of �50 cash going to the winner.

Club secretary Nikki Royden and her young daughters Eve, 5, and three-year-old Scarlett dressed up in cute duck costumes to launch the sponsorship forms and tickets. And all monies raised will be used to purchase additional training equipment for the club, which has enjoyed overwhelming success since it was formed in January.
