18 St John Street Chambers is delighted to support the MedEquip4Kids 7th Annual Duck Race which takes place this Friday at Salford Quays.

After two years of delays the MedEquip4Kids duck race is back and better than ever before. We’re excited to be part of the event and have sponsored a ‘Mega Duck’ in the Business Duck Race which takes place on Friday 15th April 2022 at the Helly Hansen Salford Watersports Centre, Salford Quays.

MedEquip4Kids is a Manchester based charity which has been working since 1985 to improve the health of babies and children across the UK. They do this by providing medical equipment and resources to hospitals and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) providers. The equipment and resources the charity provide is not covered by NHS funding.

Chambers Director James Parks commented “MedEquip4Kids do fantastic work across the UK and provide essential equipment to our babies and children. Chambers are delighted to assist in this friendly and family orientated way. By sponsoring a Mega Duck we are proud to know that we are having a positive impact on the health of babies and children.”
