Volunteers are AMAZING.

Harry’s Dad Andrew is the co-founder of Give A Duck and chair to the board of trustees.  He is also one of our mascot volunteers!  At the 2019 Leeds 10K, Andrew volunteered to wear the Chemo Duck mascot to meet the team members for a pre and post race team photo in Millenium Square, Leeds.
