Return of the Ducks



Petty’s are again taking part in this year’s Corporate Challenge organised by  Pendleside Hospice, and we’re bringing back the popular little yellow ducks.

After their great success last time round we decided we couldn’t leave them out.

Ian Bythell, Petty’s Residential Director said “This is such a great initiative by the hospice and we’re really proud to represent our patch as the area’s only chosen Relocation Agent Local Experts. We take our Corporate and Social Responsibility very seriously but that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun at the same time and the yellow ducks certainly do that”

You can purchase a duck from any of the Petty offices, then we want you to take the ducks with you where ever you go over the coming months and to send the pictures back to us at Petty.

Ian said “Just this weekend we had a duck at Ed Sheeran’s concert in Edinburgh and last time we had ducks go to music festivals, on a world cruise and one even ended up in the back of a police car in Australia! But it was also great to see them at the local super markets, school fairs and just chilling in peoples back gardens”

As our Trig Point Challenge continues we’re hoping we’ll get some pictures of the ducks up there too. 

Christina Cope, from Pendleside Hospice, added: “We’re really grateful to have had a number of prominent local businesses like Petty’s taking part in the challenge and fun initiatives like the ducks really catch people’s imagination. Donations play such a major part in keeping the hospice going and allowing us to continue the important work the hospice does in helping people living with life-limiting illnesses”
