Temporarily closed.

Unfortunately we have had to take the difficult decision to temporarily cancel all visitor open days until the end of January 2022 due to the recent rapid increase in the number of Covid-19 cases across the UK.

Our regional sanctuaries are run by small teams so with the rise in Covid-19 cases our priority has to be the safety of these staff, our visitors and in turn, our donkeys.

This was an extremely hard decision for us to make as we know how much our supporters have been looking forward to spending time with the donkeys again and we fully understand the upset that this decision will cause.
