Emily’s mum, Julia, set up the fund after Emily died suddenly from meningitis on New Year’s Day 2014.

So far, Mrs Styles, a teacher at the Royal Latin School, and her supporters have raised over £12,000 for Meningitis Now.

More than 100 people attended the duck race and more than 650 ducks were sold.

The winning duck belonged to landlord of The New Inn, Dave Whiting, who generously donated his £100 winnings back to the charity as well as hosting a barbecue at the pub after the event.
