Fundraising Table Quiz

Paddy & Eileen Barrett with the Morrissey family

A fundraising table quiz was held on Saturday 20th October 2012 at the Hazel Tree near Mallow with the proceeds split between The Donkey Sanctuary and Brú Columbanus.

It was a very successful event with 23 tables on the night and a raffle. This was organised by the family of the late Dominic Morrissey who worked at The Donkey Sanctuary but who sadly passed away in August suddenly.

The photo shows Paddy and Eileen Barrett with Marie, Yvonne, Louise and Ronan Morrissey.

Sponsored Walk

Sponsored Walk in aid of The Donkey Sanctuary

Staff, quality time volunteers, friends and family took to the roads on Saturday 29th September 2012 to fundraise for the donkeys in our care. To date we have raised €2,500 and we are expecting more to come in.

The refreshments provided by the staff on return from the walk was very welcome!

Fundraising for the donkeys

Bloomsday 2011

One of our supporters, Marilyn Nash from Dublin, hosted a garden party on Bloomsday - 16th June 2011 - with the help of The Carrig Ladies Club and raised the marvellous sum of €300. Pictured here is a beautiful photo of the ladies dressed as Molly Bloom.

Bloomsday is a commemoration observed annually on 16th June in Dublin and elsewhere to celebrate the life of Irish writer, James Joyce, and relive the events in his novel Ulysses, all of which took place on the same day in Dublin in 1904.

Evening Echo Cork Womens Mini Marathon

Running for donkeys in the Cork Women's Mini Marathon

18 Ladies (including 2 lady men) took part in the Cork Women's Mini Marathon on Sunday 25 September 2011.

After a very wet night and early morning the day cleared up beautifully just in time for the start of the mini marathon.

Paddy Barrett met the ladies before the start of the 4 mile race and took some lovely photos and thanked them for fundraising for The Donkey Sanctuary.

We had 15 ladies in the Dublin Mini Marathon in June this year as well as participants in the Connemara Marathon, 10K Limerick Run and Cork City Marathon.

Aoife and Kate visit Uncle Sam

Aoife and Kate visit Uncle Sam

Little Aoife and Kate O’Connor visited The Donkey Sanctuary to meet with the colt foal they called Uncle Sam. You may remember, we ran a competition to name this little foal that was born on 4th July 2010.

The O’Connor children were the lucky participants whose chosen name was drawn and now this little fellow is getting to know his new name.
