Donkeys go animated

The Donkey Sanctuary will be showing its unique donkey cartoon as part of Animated Exeter on Wednesday 20th February 2008 at 2pm.

The Poor Donkey cartoon was designed by the charity to help children in India understand the importance of caring for their donkeys.

Amanda Gordon spokeswoman for The Donkey Sanctuary says: "We are really excited that our cartoon is going to be shown during this special week - we hope that any children who get to see it really enjoy and learn from it.

Cameron's mum, Dawn Vincent, is Dr Svendsen's granddaughter and heads the public relations office. She is thrilled at being a mum and is also looking forward to coming back to work in March.
