The Ducklings Trust is a charity set up in 1984 to raise money for equipment and help improve the environment in the Maternity Units at Stoke Mandeville and Wycombe.
Our fundraising continues so the units can buy equipment and/or items suggested by staff or the public which help make the units be the best birth environment they can be for families and staff.
A BIG thank you and congratulations go to Andrew Smith who did a London to Brighton cycle ride to raise money for The Ducklings Trust.
21st Century Ducks Supporters Trust (21CD) did a sponsored 'duck’ walk from the old Aylesbury Utd football ground on Buckingham Road, Aylesbury to their new 'home' at The Meadow, Chesham, on Saturday, 23rd September, 2017.
This was to raise awareness of the fact that the club have been playing outside of the town for 11 years and also to raise money for The Ducklings Trust. They raised £400.
Thank you for JBD Fitness & Dance for their £190 donation raised at their Christmas Party December 2017. It is going towards a piece of equipment needed for the Primrose Room on Labour Ward.

A big thank you to Blue Goose Interiors Ltd for donating money in lieu of sending Christmas cards to their customers this year.
A local company called Baby's First Calendar contacted Ducklings leading up to Christmas wanting to donate some items for us to use to sell and raise money. Some of the items were gorgeous baby booties and My first Christmas items. These were used in the small gift stockings given to babies born on Christmas Day and New Year's Day.
