Animals are too often the forgotten heroes of conflict. During World War I, an estimated one million donkeys, mules and horses were conscripted for use by the British armed forces alone. These equines were used to transport soldiers, weapons and food, but also played a role as friends and companions to those who were fighting. No more than 60,000 are thought to have returned.
By making a donation in memory of those left behind, youll be entered into our draw to win Tommy and Poppy, two unique Neddies (crochet donkeys) handmade by one of our fantastic supporters. Entries will close at 12:00 (midday) on Monday 12th November. Supporters who enter after this time will not be entered into the draw, but donations will still be much appreciated.
All funds raised will go towards the work of both The Donkey Sanctuary and The Royal British Legion.
If you prefer not to make a donation, but would like to be entered into the prize draw, please visit our website https://www.thedonkeysanctuary.org.uk/news/neddies-of-remembrance
