Sidmouth donkeys have a bright idea and more news

DONKEY COLLAR: Fluorescent yellow collars are being offered by Sidmouth International Donkey Sanctuary to donkey owners in the New Forest to help make their animals more visible to drivers during dark winter months. Last year 65 donkeys and other free-roaming equine animals were killed in the national park, and 27 injured on its roads. The Sidmouth charity hopes the new collars will lesson the likelihood of this happening in the future.
CATHEDRAL: More than 1,000 people are expected to attend Hospiscare’s Tree of Light service at Exeter Cathedral on Sunday, December 4 at 5pm. The annual service remembers loved ones and will include carols and prayers, with readings by Hospiscare staff and volunteers. Canon Carl Turner will conduct the service with the charity’s chaplain, David Walford, and will feature the Inspirational Choir and Escape Dance Company from Exeter College and St Peter’s Singers. On display will be a Book of Memories which records more than 1,700 names. The tree will be lit outside the cathedral around 5.30pm.
