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.
