GARDENING FIRM LAUNCHES FUNDRAISER IN AID OF ISLE OF WIGHT DONKEY SANCTUARY

An Isle of Wight gardening firm is heading up a fundraiser that is set to benefit some four-legged friends.

The team at DJF Garden Maintenance has launched a fundraiser in aid of the Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary, with hopes for the money raised to go towards building a new barn for the French herd.

The French herd consists of 10 donkeys, 8 of which were saved from the meat market and were taken in by a lady in Brittany. The 2 other French donkeys were taken in by a sanctuary in Normandy – these 2 were named Hope and Charity.

A target of £500 has been set and already exceeded thanks to donations from individuals and several local businesses.

Kacey Fereday of DJF Garden Maintenance says:

“The Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary is a charity which is very close to our hearts at DJF Garden Maintenance! We are regular visitors to the sanctuary and we love the work completed by the staff for all the donkeys!

“We are avid supporters of the donkey sanctuary and we wanted to do more for this amazing charity! Our goal is to raise £500 towards the new barn!”

So far, £565 has been raised. If you’d like to donate, you can head to the JustGiving page here.

Why don’t they start doing donkey rides along Ryde and apply, like they do in Blackpool, I presume that the donkeys would enjoy it,and they would be a great fund raiser for the sanctuary its self, and great for tourism, the donkeys would not be exploited as it would be run as a charity from expert staff and volunteers, win win all round ????
