This year being as it is, the fabulous people at the Donkey Sanctuary are still determined to bring us the service.
The Donkey Sanctuary will be bringing it to us! It's all happening on Friday 11 December 2020 at 6pm. We can sit at home and watch everything from there on Facebook.
There will be traditional carols and readings in the company of many of the donkeys, and a catch up with some of the resident donkeys too!
There will be a welcome from Maxine Carter first, the Farm Manager, and the Main Yard Herd.
Then it’s Carols by Candlelight (The Donkey Sanctuary Sidmouth and St Mary's Church).
Timmy and Tommy were rescued from a terrible ordeal back in 2016 and now they are enjoying sanctuary life in Devon. Hannah and Cocoa, both adoption donkeys, will make an appearance too.
The schedule is subject to change, but it sounds like a wonderful way to enjoy an evening and see the donkeys in the lead up to Christmas!
All you need to do is RSVP via the Donkey Sanctuary’s Facebook page
Why not adopt a donkey as a Christmas present? (Virtually, obviously, although the Sanctuary is always looking for Donkey Guardians to re-home donkeys (minimum two donkeys, as they don’t like being alone.)
Can't wait? Want to see the donkeys now?
Take a look at the webcams with live coverage of these gentle animals.
