80p out of every £1 goes directly on donkey welfare and care
Earlier in the year, I was invited to be the judge for this year’s national Best Beach Donkey competition and having accepted, I began the first leg of my journey around the country to take in seven resorts around the UK … covering a total of 1,500 miles in just four days!
The competition itself is a culmination of regular visits throughout the UK by 5 regional welfare officers who put forward the best group and best individual donkey in their area to be judged nationally.
... it's time to take a walk around the Sanctuary with camera in hand to take photos of the donkeys enjoying the sunshine and to meet and talk to the many visitors.
We have a new walkway open (Walk F) which takes in some of the resident donkeys at Trow Farm and it's here that I noticed a new donkey among them called Varna, an 8 year old donkey who came into the Sanctuary in June of this year.
