The charity held a host of activities throughout the holidays which were enjoyed by the young and old alike.

Guests were invited to help the charity celebrate its golden anniversary and take part in a special Easter egg hunt.

The holiday hunt gave visitors the perfect opportunity to explore the sanctuary and find out more about some of the most iconic donkeys that live at the sanctuary and all have unique characters and stories to tell.

A competition was also held that gave visitors the chance to win a 'VIP Bray and Stay' experience for up to four people, when signing up for the new Dawdle for Donkeys fundraising walk.
