TO BOOST cash donations, Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary is launching a Collectibles Corner to help support its work in the UK and overseas.

Supporters are being asked to donate items of value, such as china, silverware or books, which will be sold to help improve the lives of donkeys.

Fundraising campaigns co-ordinator Xanthe Breens said she hoped the Collectibles Corner would provide another way for supporters to help during the recession.

"We hope that people may be able to look through their cupboards for collectible items that they no longer have a use for and consider donating them to us so that we can carry on providing donkeys with a sanctuary for life," she said.

Just £12 will provide alternative bedding for a donkey with respiratory problems or painful foot conditions, while £15 will help supply a week's worth of additional or specialist feeds to donkeys needing help to maintain a healthy weight.

Contact Xanthe on (01395) 578222 if you would like to donate a collectible item or learn more about the project.
