Latest press releases
From 24 June The Donkey Sanctuary invites you to join their Wildlife & Conservation Coordinator on evening strolls to find out about resident bats at the Sanctuary’s headquarters.
During the Bat Walk, you will be taken around the woods, fields and hedges at Slade House Farm and shown how to use a bat detector so that you can listen for different species of bat as they fly and hunt for insects.
Volunteers at The Donkey Sanctuary will be thanked for giving the gift of time in celebrations to mark National Volunteers’ Week 2016, which runs from 1-12 June.
People who volunteer for the Sanctuary are valued as true champions giving the precious gift of their time. Volunteers are central to the work of countless charities and other organisations. They are a valuable presence in many communities, helping out in places as diverse as sports clubs, libraries, schools and hospitals.
The Donkey Sanctuary is beginning preparations and recruitment for a new charity shop opening in the summer of 2016 in the centre of Tavistock.
The ‘For The Love Of…’ shop will be the second of its kind in the country to offer an exciting blend of quality donated pre-loved goods and The Donkey Sanctuary’s exclusive new range of gift items. There will also be the chance to pause for a delicious Fairtrade coffee, complete with carrot cake or donkey-shaped shortbreads.
