To mark Palm Sunday, The Donkey Sanctuary responded to a request from two churches to attend two services in Belfast. Nelly the donkey kindly stepped up to the mark and was greeted with much adoration and attention from the congregation in both parishes. She was even presented with a bag of carrots for attending!
Nelly helped us to spread the word about our necessary work as well as re-enforcing the donkey’s important symbolic meaning at this time of the year.
Many thanks to Willowfield Parish Church and Mount Merrion Parish Church for their kind hospitality and donations to The Donkey Sanctuary.
Nelly was chosen for this very important role yesterday because of her quiet, kind and loving disposition. She is currently one of the donkeys on our foster scheme in Ireland and is currently looking to be fostered along with her companion May.
If you would like to learn more about fostering Nelly and May or indeed any of our wonderful pairs of foster donkeys in Ireland, please get in touch with our Sanctuary in Ireland by calling +353 (0) 22 49013.
