Here’s a snap from a visit to the Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary to pick up some Christmas cards yesterday with Busby the donkey keen for a photo!

The sanctuary offers a home for over 90 donkeys and 25 horses and ponies, all funded by donations to the charity. Open all year around to the public, it is a great day out with the family to visit the donkeys, enjoy a meal in the cafe and adopt a donkey or visit the gift shop to support the sanctuary’s work.

All of this for free – yes, free! – so don’t forget to visit during your next break on the Island and help keep the donkeys and their friends enjoying their new life at the sanctuary.
