Since Woolley first arrived at the Sanctuary, he and his adorable knitted donkey friends have been growing in popularity every year. They are knitted by supporters and then sold in our visitors’ centre to raise funds to support the charity. If you can't wait to get your hands on one, you can also buy your own Woolley donkey online. We're now calling our supporters to get knitting and help raise money for our worldwide work.
So many of our supporters have asked if they can help fundraise for us but aren't able to make the adorable Woolleys because their skills lie in being able to crochet.
Have fun making these beautiful felt donkeys to raise funds at community events to help The Donkey Sanctuary care for donkeys and mules in need all over the world. Fill them with lavender for a fresh summer scent or cloves or cinnamon for a Christmas fragrance. Once you've created your little felt donkeys, simply post them to us. These donkeys look great hanging everywhere from a Christmas tree to a car as an air freshener.
