The Fruitcakes Donkey Sanctuary Donations Page

I know we have been discussing charities on here recently and nothing got decided but last year on Motorhome Fruitcakes we rose a little bit of money to help the wonderful Donkey Sanctuary charity by selling window stickers.

The main centre is in Sidmouth in Devon and its a fantastic place to visit. They do wonderful work looking after Donkeys and Mules of all shapes and sizes. They have other centres around the UK as well as Ireland, Spain and Italy

You can visit and do a tour of the large Sanctuary at Sidmouth and its all free. Large car park with space for motorhomes. You can find out more here. http://www.thedonkeysanctuary.org.uk/

They even have webcams so you can watch them in the barn and around the Sanctuary. http://www.thedonkeysanctuary.org.uk/webcams Michelle spends hours just watching them.

Last year the Fruitcakes adopted Teddy (see below). He is partially blind and not in the best of health. The photo below was taken of him at Sidmouth this morning. Of course he is in the best place and will receive as much help, love and attention as he needs but the Sanctuary rely very much on our support. With that in mind this year on fruitcakes we have simply created a donation page.

I know a lot of you view the forum as guests and hopefully enjoy the laughs as do many others so you may have seen the thread about it. If not then here is the link. https://www.justgiving.com/motorhomefruitcakesdonks

We are hoping to raise 1000 and in the first hour or so yesterday evening we hit 160.

I know there are some much more important charities but its something thats dear to our hearts so if you can spare even a small amount then Teddy will be extremely grateful.

Teddy at Sidmouth this morning

Secretly I am trying to raise enough money to pack off that crazy Donkey at Flamborough where we go to Sidmouth so he will stop eating my Fridge vents, scooter and my pants when I bend down. Im not sure they would have ASBO Donkey though. He has plagued me all Christmas for three weeks. There is a row of caravans stored along the hedge and (I am not making this up) he would hide in the small gaps between the vans on a morning about the time he KNEW I would be taking the rubbish and then jump out on me. He would pick a different one each day.

Love the pictures!

It's a worthy cause, I'll drop by later and donate something.

Pity you can't take bales of hay....

I like donkeys.

If the bottom is falling out of your world, take "Andrews" and let the world fall out of your bottom.

I would expect so although when me and Tuggers went for a "lads day out" we had to hand over our carrots. I think they will feed them and distribute any gifts but they probably worry about peoples fingers going missing or feeding the sick ones the wrong stuff

We have ponies, so understand the issues.

They can be so full of character, and mischievous, but you can also get a nasty injury if they lash out.

Feed is a major expense at this time of year, hopefully the funds are there for hay etc.
