A loving mum has placed more than 50 knitted ducks in a Peterborough park to mark the first anniversary of a charity set up in her daughter’s memory.

Ann Rowcliffe with family and friends dotted the ducks around Central Park yesterday - two years after the death of her daughter Clare Cruickshank (26) from cystic fibrosis. Clare donated her corneas so two young adults could have their sight restored. The charity, which is known worldwide, was created by Clare’s friend Emma Harris. Each duck has a label highlighting life-saving random acts of kindness of organ donation and invites the finder to take the gift and register where they found it at: thelittleyellowduckproject.org
