Celebrating the 10th anniversary

Add to my collection

This year, the #BarclaysDuck is dressed up in his very best top hat and tails to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Barclays Jersey Boat Show. This year’s design was created by Tegan, the winner of last year’s duck design competition.

The duck itself has become an icon of the Barclays Jersey Boat Show since its first appearance in 2010. It is a firm favourite with children and adults alike playing the ‘Hook a Duck’ game, with over 15,000 ducks being claimed by locals and visitors alike with some returning each year to update their collections.

The duck also helps raise money for charity, with over £54,000 raised for charity since Barclay’s involvement in the Show. As the Barclays Jersey Boat Show celebrates its tenth anniversary this year, three charities have been chosen to help mark this TEN milestone, Teenage Cancer Trust – Jersey Appeal, EYECAN (Jersey Blind Society) and the NSPCC Jersey.

The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity (RNRMC), which is also celebrating its ten year anniversary, will also benefit from money raised at other events across the bank holiday weekend.
