The Spring Fair at our donkey assisted therapy centre in Eccup, Leeds took place on Saturday 13th April. The sun shone and our supporters came along and helped us to raise lots of money. The children played on Jar bola, Bottleoba as well as tried their luck with the traditional tombola and having a got at a "Name the Bear" competition.
Our Parents & Friends Association (PFA) took up residence in one of the donkey pens and sold lots of their specialist PFA merchandise.
We also had a lovely cake stand with lots of Pop cakes going down a treat.
The children rode the donkeys on our Easter obstacle course and were treated to an Easter egg at the end of their ride.
We're so pleased that we now have 18 new ‘Adoptive’ mums and dads to our adoption donkeys, who fell in love with them at the fair and adopted them on the day.
Roger Rabbit also made a guest appearance and here he is pictured with Ripple, a gorgeous dark chocolate coloured donkey, being looked after by Abi who came along with her family to the fair.
