You can go quackers on a visit to an historic hall this summer.

Silverdale’s own Emmerdale star Emma Atkins, aka Charity Dingle, has designed a giant duck which will take up residence at Leighton Hall.

The 4ft-6ins AquaDuck will be moving in to the Carnforth tearoom gardens to support Macmillan, CLIC Sargent and Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Emma’s duck is one of 24 being placed at different top tourist spotsthroughout the county.

Giggles, as the duck has been named, will arrive at the beginning of June and stay throughout the summer.

In mid-October, the duck will migrate to Blackpool where all 24 birds will be auctioned off for the three cancer charities.

The idea of aquaducked.co.uk is that the ducks are decorated locally after being awarded with a theme by a celebrity. Emma opted for a superhero theme for Leighton’s duck, which will be decorated by students from UCLAN.
