Love children and donkeys? Looking to make a difference? Look no further: The Donkey Sanctuary in Templepatrick, Belfast, is looking for new week day volunteers.
Your time will be spent assisting and supporting children with additional needs during their donkey assisted therapy sessions in an indoor arena.
Volunteers are needed from Monday to Friday, for our Wednesday afternoon ‘Twilight’ and our ‘Saturday Club’ every third Saturday of the month.
Volunteers are vital to ensuring the children get the best from the experience.
Centre Manager, Tina Symington, says: “We are looking for new volunteers to join our enthusiastic team and help us deliver this unique service to children with additional needs. Our volunteers play an important part in enhancing the lives of children and young people and we could not operate without them.
“If you think you could help out, even once a month or would just be interested in a chat to find out more please call us on 028 9332 4647”
Enthusiasm, patience, and an interest in children with additional needs is essential. All other training will be given. Your time will be rewarded with unlimited donkey cuddles.
The Donkey Sanctuary provides over 6,000 riding therapy sessions for children with additional needs from across the province each year. For further information contact the centre in Templepatrick on 028 9332 4647.
