Sanctuary from your Sofa

12 April 2020 - 10:00 to 16:00
No booking required

We know a lot of you have been missing the donkeys over the past few weeks, so this Easter Sunday, we're bringing the sanctuary to you.

Join us LIVE on Facebook from 10am (BST) for a one-off behind the scenes tour of our beautiful Sidmouth headquarters in Devon, home to over 200 donkeys.

We'll be broadcasting from right across the farm, meeting donkeys of all shapes and sizes and perhaps even a few familiar faces!

So sit back, relax and enjoy a day at the sanctuary from the comfort of your sofa.

Two grey donkeys, Mr Khan and Ashley, graze together so closely that their muzzles touch.

Spot your Sidmouth adoption donkeys.
