Our knitted donkeys are proving so popular, we need extra help!
We're looking for keen knitters to turn their needles towards creating a herd of knitted donkeys to sell through our Visitor's Centre and online Gift Shop.
Being so popular, the knitted donkeys will help us to raise much needed funds. The pattern itself originally came from a 1954 issue of the Woman's Weekly magazine. It's wonderful that it has been revived over 50 years later!
As each one is individually hand made, all the knitted donkeys are truly unique creations with their own personalities, just like the Sanctuary's real life donkeys.
We're thrilled with the success of these lovable characters and due to their popularity, we're calling our supporters to get knitting and help raise money for the work that we do providing sanctuary for needy donkeys.
To receive a free copy of either knitting pattern, with full instructions, for a 'Woolley' (24cm/9 inch high) or 'Mini Woolley' (12cm/5inches high), contact Ruth in our community fundraising department on 01395 572222.
