Hi there! My name is Claire Light and my new role is PR Assistant at The Donkey Sanctuary. I am very excited about my new job, although it's going to take some getting used to because for the last nine years I have been working as a Farmworker/Groom at Brookfield Farm.
I finally decided to take the plunge and make the move from outside to inside this year because the opportunity was too good to miss! The PR department is a really exciting place to work, and Dawn and Amanda have made me really welcome. I have only been in here a week and there's so much to learn! I think it's going to take a little while but I'm enjoying every day.
I will miss the donkeys, but luckily we seem to get out and about doing this job so I still get to see them. Also I can go and visit them at lunchtimes as there are lots of nice walks here at the Sanctuary, and, to be honest, so far I've been so busy I haven't had time to miss them too much!
