Story

Many Miles for Minidonks

Many Miles for MiniDonks is inspired by MinDonks super-supporter Ian Hytch, who has set himself the challenge of walking 80 miles in 8 days in his 80th year. Ian is walking in memory of his friend Dr. Nick Ireland who sadly died in an accident before he could join Ian in his challenge. Ian’s walk will finish on Saturday 26th June in Cromer, where our wonderful Miniature Donkeys will be waiting to meet him. All our friends and supporters are invited to come along and have some fun.

To help Ian reach his target of £5,000 we’re asking people to get moving and help us cover Many Miles for MiniDonks: raising money for a series of MiniDonks Pop-up Farm Experiences. We love visiting care homes and other residential settings, and our hope is that the MiniDonks Pop-Up Farm Experiences will allow even more people with life-limiting conditions to get up close and personal with our wonderful herd of miniature donkeys, plus lots of other animals. We know that spending time with animals can bring genuine therapeutic benefits and moments of pure joy to people living with complex disabilities and conditions such as dementia. It’s our mission to bring a touch of MiniDonk magic to as many communities as possible.

    Wow!. We have reached a quarter of our target. You are amazing - thank you! This means that the first of our Minidonk pop-up farm events will be happening. We have a venue, which will have free parking, fully accessible disabled toilet facilities, fully accessible grounds. We have our social enterprise partners ready to roll with their mobile farm (pygmy goats, sheep, chickens, ducks and more), wellbeing activities and of course, The Minidonks. All free of charge for people with life limiting conditions, special needs or mental health issues.
