It was crunch time for residents of The Donkey Sanctuary after the Sidmouth branch of Waitrose donated 150kg of carrots.
The donkeys were able to enjoy foraging for the carrots as staff hid them in haylage.
Farm manager Maxine Carter said: “We are so thankful for the generous donation from our local Waitrose store, it is a lovely example of how they are supporting those throughout the community.
“The carrots provide a much-needed treat for our donkeys during this difficult time as well as extra enrichment opportunities.”
Alex Hill, partner and deputy branch manager at Sidmouth Waitrose said: “Waitrose in Sidmouth are delighted to be able to support a wide range of local organisations during this challenging period.
