Glenys Johns from Cornwall recently sent us this beautiful hand-made quilted blanket asking if we could find a way to raise funds for all our donkeys and mules. What better way to drift off to sleep counting donkeys!
Measuring approximately 183cm (72") x 183cm (72") the quilted blanket is designed with 14 donkeys in various colours and fabrics stitched on by hand. The reverse side of the quilt is of a bright floral pattern.
Wrapped up with this blanket is also a very special donkey - Neddy is his name (measuring approximately 18cm [7"] sitting). He is the first ever crocheted donkey to be shown to the public ahead of when the rest of the herd go on sale later in the year.
We are offering you an opportunity to own this beautiful Spring Donkeys quilted blanket as well as being the first person to own one of our Neddy donkeys.
If you would like a chance to own them both, all we ask is that you kindly make a donation - be in it to have a chance of winning!
Don't forget to tick the box to stay informed when making an online donation so that we can contact you if you are the lucky winner.
Alternatively, donate by text DONK57 to 70070.
We will be drawing the winner's name on Easter Monday (6 April 2015) at 2.30pm.
If you prefer not to make a donation, but would like to be entered into the prize draw, please post your name and address to:
The Donkey Sanctuary (Spring Donkeys Draw)
