The Donkey Sanctuary’s Hospital Appeal has won a £1,000 competition prize, thanks to our amazing online supporters.
In October, JustGiving launched a competition to find one worthy Christmas campaign to support.
Having made it on to the shortlist of 12 nominees, it was over to our friends and supporters who were called upon to vote for the new Donkey Hospital to win.
In all, around 5,000 votes were cast across the dozen candidates and today (Monday, 21 December) it has been announced that our campaign has been named as JustGiving’s 2015 Christmas Campaign.
Here at The Donkey Sanctuary we need to build a new veterinary facility to provide life-saving and life-changing treatment for more sick and injured donkeys and mules.
Money raised from our appeal will go towards a new hospital that has separate anaesthesia and recovery boxes, allowing us to help twice as many donkeys.
Jenifer Tucker from The Donkey Sanctuary said: “We are absolutely thrilled to win JustGiving’s 12 Campaigns of Christmas competition with our Get Better Hospital Appeal.
Thank you so much to everyone who voted for us.
“Thank you so much to everyone who voted for us – and for the incredible generosity they have also shown by donating towards our new hospital, that will enable us to help more donkeys in need.”
Phil Best from JustGiving said: “Huge congratulations to The Donkey Sanctuary! We hope your £1,000 prize donation and extra promotion on the JustGiving Feed, email and social media channels will boost your Campaign and help even more donkeys in 2016.
“Happy Christmas from JustGiving!”
