MORE volunteers to give guided tours around its network of walkways are needed by Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary.

The charity has launched an appeal for volunteers, who will need an interest in donkeys, a cheerful disposition, be reasonably fit and feel confident in talking to groups of visitors.

Kate Bailey, events co-ordinator, said: "This is the perfect role for anyone who enjoys meeting people and being outdoors in stunning surroundings.

"By having guided tours we can ensure visitors get the most from their walks. They will be able to appreciate the many points of interest as well as learn about our work worldwide."

Volunteers will be provided with full training and work on a rota basis throughout the summer season in two to three-hour shifts.
