The Donkey Sanctuary Spring Grand Raffle 2011 was drawn on Monday 9th May 2011. The draw was made by our much loved and greatly missed Founder, Dr Elisabeth Svendsen, who sadly passed away on Wednesday 11th May 2011.
Dr Svendsen was delighted to be able to make the draw at the end of our special “Donkey Week” event here in Sidmouth. Each of the winning tickets was plucked from a donkey feeding trough and everyone was on the edge of their seats as Dr Svendsen announced the lucky winners.
We can confirm that our three lucky Spring Grand Raffle 2011 winners are as follows:
- 1st prize (£5,000): P Taylor, Topsham (winning ticket 3688325)
- 2nd prize (£2,000): D Scriven, Ossett (winning ticket 3087636)
- 3rd prize (£1,000): B Wood, Bognor Regis (winning ticket 2148699)
Once again, we have been overwhelmed by the enormous response to our Grand Raffle in aid of The Donkey Sanctuary. Such a wonderful response enables us to continue helping many more donkeys in need both here in the UK and overseas. There is always so much work to be done in promoting donkey care and welfare and it is reassuring to know that, despite these difficult economic times, we still have the help of so many loyal and dedicated supporters.
