The Donkey Sanctuary is looking for donations of items of value such as china, silverware or books and your kind contribution of any unwanted collectibles will be turned into money for reaching out and improving the lives of donkeys.
Fundraising Campaigns Co-ordinator Xanthe Breens explains ‘In the current economic climate every penny counts even more; we hope that our Collectibles Corner will provide a way for supporters to continue to give their much needed support during these difficult times. We hope that people may be able to look through their cupboards for collectible items that they no longer have a use for and consider donating them to us so that we can carry on providing donkeys with a sanctuary for life.’
Funds made from Collectibles Corner will go to support The Donkey Sanctuary’s work both overseas and in the UK.
- £12 could provide alternative bedding for a donkey with respiratory problems or painful foot conditions, making a world of difference to a poorly donkey.
- A donation worth £15 could help to supply a week’s worth of additional or specialist feeds to donkeys who need help maintaining a healthy weight.
The Donkey Sanctuary will do their utmost to raise as much money as they can from each and every item but cannot guarantee that they will sell for more than their original purchase price.
If you would like to donate a collectible item to the Sanctuary or are interested in finding out more then please contact Xanthe Breens on 01395 578222.
