Racing Ducks and Winning Gruffalos


It was another sun-soaked day for the annual Storrington Duck Race and we were delighted once again to be Star Sponsors. The weather changed for the better overnight and brought out the crowds for another fun-filled day, graced by literary celebrity. 

We were delighted to have the support of multi-award winning children's author. Julia Donaldson (Pictured above) signing copies of her now world-famous bestseller The Gruffalo. We ran a very popular raffle to win one of the signed books, as part of a day raising much needed funds for Storrington Primary School. 

Julia, a local resident, performed the countdown to get the first race underway and was among the spectators urging hundreds of ducks down the course in the River Stor. As well as 6 heats and a grand final full of racing ducks, there were plenty of craft stalls and fairground rides, as well as live music, bars and barbecues. 

We had a busy stall set up and manned by Sarah Warwick, from the Family Law team at our Storrington office, supported by Senior Partner Chris Wise and Suzanne Bastick from the Property Team, throughout the day.
