The Donkey Sanctuary Ivybridge invites visitors for a day of festive fun at our Christmas Market on Saturday 14 December. The free day out promises something for all the family and includes a raffle, tombola, numerous local artisan traders and live music, giving visitors the opportunity to pick up unique and special Christmas gifts from local companies and support donkeys at the same time.
The day features a Christmas trail, which is a great way to explore the centre, while younger visitors will enjoy the face painting, story time with Lucky our donkey mascot and writing to Santa on behalf of the donkeys. Families can even have a photo taken with Santa and Lucky the Donkey.
From the main stage, various local choirs including Plymouth Mayflower Chorus, will be providing live musical entertainment with some festive tunes.
Visitors will have the chance to meet the resident herd of donkeys, including Pooh and Eeyore and can find out how adopting these two special donkeys enables the charity to continue reaching donkeys across the world.
The Donkey Sanctuary Donkey World shop will be stacked with all sorts of donkey-inspired goodies, which make ideal gifts, or a perfect souvenir of the day.
Our kitchen will be open serving seasonal hot and cold refreshments throughout the day as well as special homemade goodies to take home.
Booking is now open for stalls and traders.
All proceeds from our events help fund the work of The Donkey Sanctuary
