A Devon donkey charity today unveiled its 2009 dates for donkey carer experience days; it has found that the opportunity to ‘muck in’ at its Sanctuary in Sidmouth makes an ideal gift for ‘the person that has everything’.
The Sidmouth-based Donkey Sanctuary has created these unique £150 experience days to help raise funds towards its worldwide work; in return, participants can enjoy a hands-on, behind-the-scenes experience meeting and caring for some of its donkeys.
Debbie Pearce who heads the Sanctuary’s fundraising team hopes people will consider the day as an alternative Christmas or birthday gift and believes it is well worth it:
She says: “Amongst all experience gifts on the market, we offer truly hands-on activities, including mucking out stables, grooming donkeys and exercising them. We have received amazing feedback during our first of providing these special events; most participants didn’t want the day to end.”
The experience day dates available in 2009:
- Wednesday 1st April
- Wednesday 22nd April
- Thursday 14th May
- Tuesday 19th May
- Thursday 11th June
- Tuesday 23rd June
- Tuesday 7th July
- Wednesday 9th September
- Thursday 24th September
- Thursday 8th October
