DUCK WEEK 2017
DUCK WEEK 2017 is here!! We are putting on the best events in Durham and across the country to raise as much money as possible for charity in a single week!
Attend our spectacular charity formal, explore another city with our Rag Raid and pay off those library fines knowing the money is going to a brilliant cause. Have loads of fun in our college events and be sure to watch out for our online competition! DUCK Week gives you the opportunity to make good on that New Year's resolution to make incredible memories whilst doing something great this year!
All of our events based in Durham will be raising money for the local charities fund - through this fund we support a range of projects run by charities in Durham and the North East.
