A 6km sponsored walk will take place on Saturday 29th September 2012 in Liscarroll starting at The Donkey Sanctuary at 11am.

Cards have been given to all staff and volunteers, everyone are welcome to come and take part to help raise much needed funds. As we approach the winter months, feeding costs will rise and there is usually extra calls for donkeys to be relinquished to the Sanctuary.
