Meet Katapunk – Voted Best Dressed Duck!

dsc_0241

Pictured with the lovely Amelie  is our very own Katapunk Duck, voted Best Dressed ‘Corporate Duck’ at Saturday’s Ey Up Mi Duck race, in aid of Sight Support Derbyshire.

This is the fourth annual duck race organised by Sight Support Derbyshire and although the 5,000 small plastic ducks had difficulty finishing the race due to the wind, the big ducks sponsored by Derbyshire companies kept everyone entertained, along with a jazz band, bouncy castles and local Derbyshire beer and food tents.

Katapult bought two large ducks, with all proceeds going to the charity. When MD Dawn and designers Dan and Martin were let loose on them, they gradually transformed into an Orville the Duck replica complete with green furry feathers, and our winning duck – The Katapunk, the pink haired doodle duck pictured below with the mayor and the other giant duck entrants.

Congratulations to Sight Support Derbyshire who raised over £8,000 for the charity.

Katapunk will have pride of place in the studio, though we are still awaiting the return of Orville who took his furry chances in the Derwent…we hope he could swim better than he could fly.

To be continued…
