Every year we welcome supporters to join us in a magical evening of Christmas carols with our Candlelight Service at The Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth.

This year, the event is being held on Friday 14 December, and thousands of candles will be lit from 3pm onwards.

The 45 minute Christmas carol service will begin at 5pm in New Barn and we will bring it to you right here with the webcam where we will be turning the sound on for one day only.

Among the herd in New Barn will be adoption donkeys Bonnie and Ruby – the two tallest donkeys in the herd - see if you can spot them! Last year, Ruby lead the donkeys in a chorus of braying just as the congregation began to sing Little Donkey! Will they join in again this year?

Still on the lookout for some unique Christmas gifts that do some good? Adopt a donkey like Ruby or Bonnie today to support our work caring for rescued and abandoned animals all year round.
