I am running the London 2022 marathon to raise funds for The Donkey Sanctuary. Despite Coronavirus hampering my previous attempts this will be my first marathon, and I will keep you all updated with progress along the way...but enough about me and more about THE DONKEYS!

Donkeys provide valuable support to humans through programmes such as "Donkey Facilitated Learning" and "Wellbeing with Donkeys" helping individuals focus on skills such as self awareness, self care and work life balance. 

The Donkey Sanctuary also undertakes work to combat the Donkey skin trade, where the demand for donkey skin outstrips supply, leading to decline in Donkey populations. Donkey populations in China have collapsed by 76% since 1992. Since 2007 donkey populations have declined by 28% in Brazil, by 37% in Botswana and 53% in Kyrgyzstan.

The Donkey Sanctuary rely entirely upon donations to help provide these services for individuals, as well as rehome and care for overworked, neglected, feral, or injured Donkeys. By donating to my page together we can make sure that that donkeys in the UK always have a place to go if they need one, as well as making sure that working donkeys in other countries get the care they need and deserve. Thank you for your support.
