We need your help to find and give new homes to ten rubber ducks which have flown the nest and are hiding in locations throughout Hampshire!

The ducks, called Captain Quack Sparrow, James Pond, Sirius Quack, Bill Weasley, Quack Efron, David Beakham, Hetty Feather, Serena Billiams, Little Bo Beak and Mary Bobbins, are hiding in duck-related named roads in Chandler's Ford, Eastleigh, Hythe, Dibden, Portsmouth, Bournemouth, Marchwood and Sandown on the Isle of Wight.

If you find one, read the tag around its neck which will tell you what to do next. We'd love you to post a picture of yourself clutching your duck on your social media channels tagging @wessexcancer and using the hashtags #ducktales and #zerotohero. You can then get in touch with Wessex Cancer Trust who will reward you with a free meal for two, kindly donated by Nando's. 

The duck hunt is part of Wessex Cancer Trust's 'Zero to Hero' campaign which runs throughout Childhood Cancer Awareness month this September. At the start of the month, participants will be given a rubber duck and will have 30 days to carry out a series of trades and obtain an item of higher value each time. They will then sell, raffle or auction their final item to raise as much money as possible for Wessex Cancer Trust's children's support services. Zero to Hero is aimed at anyone who wants to put their entrepreneurial and competitive skills to the test, from corporate teams to school children. 

Heidi Rehman, Wessex Cancer Trust's Community Engagement Manager, said:

Cancer can be a huge shock at any age, but particularly challenging for young adults and children. Our specialist support services ensure they get the support they need for free, in a local setting.  Ten of our rubber ducks have flown the nest and are hiding in spots throughout Hampshire waiting to be found and help raise awareness of childhood cancer, and we can't wait to be introduced to their new owners!
