Judging of Blackpool’s beach donkeys will take place on the beach on Tuesday 25th August at 4pm as part of a national competition run by the Sidmouth-based Donkey Sanctuary.
A group of donkeys, owned by Karen Richardson and Tommy, owned by Debbie Clews have been singled out by the charity’s judges as the region’s finest. Along with finalists from other British resorts, these donkeys will now be scrutinised by a national judge for a chance to win a top award.
