Story

We take our gentle and friendly miniature donkeys into care homes, dementia units, autism groups etc to provide people with the opportunity to see, touch, and talk to these amazing animals. Our feedback says, "Priceless watching smiles and hearing the memories... I never thought I would have a donkey in my bedroom!" The current situation with Corona Virus means that we have lost 95% of our income overnight. We have lost £23,500 in income so far and if the situation lasts another 6 months we will lose around £50k in income. This is money that we can't recoup and whilst we are constantly looking we are not eligible for much of the support available. We are doing our very best to keep in touch with our people through virtual visits and sending cards and letters. We need your help to be able to survive until we can restart our face to face visits. Thank you.

    We just wanted to share with you all - we are back out on the road! Small steps, outdoor visits, no more than 6 people, but we loved visiting one of our regulars, a very special young man. We think the donks were pleased to see him too! If you can support us, any amount will help to keep us running, and bring smiles and a bit of Minidonk magic to people who cannot access this sort of well being gold dust without us visiting them. Thank you

    Thank you to everyone who has donated to help us weather the coronavirus pandemic. You are all stars! Whilst we have not been able to get out visiting we have been doing our very best to spread a bit of donkey cheer with 500 activity packs, gift packs and 300 Christmas Minidonk Bingo packs going out to care homes and community settings across the UK. So thank you, and Merry Christmas to you all.

    We want to thank everyone who has donated in the past 24 hours, following our Facebook post. You have been truly amazing and have donated almost £1,500 between you. We have had to increase our fundraising target to reflect the loss of income that the pandemic has brought about, but with your support, we will be back out visiting, bringing smiles to peoples' faces, just as soon as we are able. Thank you all from the bottom of our Minidonk hearts.
