Another year and another round of six very successful open days from April to September ending with our summer fair last month here at The Donkey Sanctuary's Derbyshire centre.
The sun shone on us all day where hundreds of visitors flooded through our gates to come and see the wonderful work that The Donkey Sanctuary does.
We laid on many attractions on the day ranging from:
- Craft stalls
- Bouncy castle and slide for the children
- Farrier display
- Games with fantastic prizes
- Face painting
- Grand raffle and much more
And the donkeys of course being the stars of the show.
All the donkeys in our care loved all the fuss and attention from the visitors especially Arnie our resident Poitou who stole many hearts on the day. Arnie has been with us at the Derbyshire Centre for over four years now and made friends with Frankie who lost his horse friend not long after he arrived.
We managed to raise over £6,000 on the day, giving a grand total for the year of £15,000. A great day had by all. Thanks everyone for your kind support and generosity.
See you again next year. Keep a look out for our next open day in 2016!
