We’re Off to the Manchester Duck Race!





Our Manchester studio has entered the Manchester Duck Race


What's the Manchester Duck Race you ask? Only a quacker of a day in which individuals, teams and workplaces compete in a race of epic proportions while raising funds for Brainwave!

Brainwave is a charity based in the heart of Manchester & Salford that exists to help children with disabilities and additional needs to achieve greater independence by aiming to improve mobility, communication skills and learning potential through a range of educational and physical therapies. The children Brainwave work with have a range of conditions including autism, brain injuries such as cerebral palsy and genetic disorders such as Down’s syndrome.

This year marks the 10th Annual major fundraiser for Brainwave and we've got not one but two entries for the coveted Best Dressed Duck Competition!

Designed and decorated by our Brown Bag Manchester Editor Sam Smith, check out this furry entry in honour of her schnauzer Pete!
