My names Nicola Russell and I’m the new PR Assistant. This is my third day working at The Donkey Sanctuary and I’m extremely excited about being here! I am forever learning what a fantastic job the charity is doing. I was naive about the size of the charity-not only having farms in the UK, but how the charity has expanded in helping donkeys and mules all over the world. Having met a lot of the staff I noticed that we are all here for the same reason and that’s the love for the donkeys and mules. Every member of staff has so much passion and care for these animals; I’ve found it so warming to see.
So far this week the PR team and I have been amusing ourselves by making a video to support our nomination for an Equestrian Social Media Award, so watch this space! I have also been preparing a contact log for the press and media enquiries which has kept me rather busy!
I’m taking part in a donkey care induction day in March which I’m really looking forward to and I can’t wait to find my favourite donkey! So far I think it’s Joseph (the donkey I’m pictured with) as he was the first donkey to come over to me and followed me around everywhere!
