Sanctuary from your Sofa with the Donkey Sanctuary is back - 4th April 2021

Posted on


Last December, the Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth held their Christmas Carols by Candlelight evening.  The difference was of course that in 2020, it was a virtual service.

The good news is that on the 4th April 2021, Sanctuary from the Sofa is back!

The Donkey Sanctuary will be bringing the donkeys straight into our sitting rooms - virtually, of course!  It's all happening on Sunday 4 April 2021 and everything kicks off at 10.00am with Spot the Difference.  (Can you tell the difference between Millie the mule and donkeys Jump and Dartanyan?)  We can sit at home and watch everything from there on Facebook.

There's a chance to see the gorgeous Poitou donkeys and to spend time with the donkeys and the amazing people looking after them.  It's a chance to find out more about the donkeys as well - how do the lovely people at the Sanctuary keep them entertained?  How do you introduce a new donkey to the herd?  

It's not all from Sidmouth - the event is in Manchester, Ivybridge and Belfast as well. :-) 

You can find out how the donkeys have overcome adversity and huge challenges in life and catch up with many of the adoption donkeys. 

The event can be seen here and on the Donkey Sanctuary's You Tube page

Visit the Donkey Sanctuary’s website to find out more.  


Adopt a donkey!

Why not adopt a donkey?  (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.
