The Donkey Sanctuary is being featured as part of Channel 5's Help the Animals appeal.

From Monday to Friday, there will be special episodes of animal-themed shows, aimed at raising money for five animal charities.

Tuesday's episode of The Yorkshire Vet, at 8pm, sees the star of the show, Peter Wright, in his role as ambassador of The Donkey Sanctuary.

Accompanied by donkey-loving farmers Steve and Jean Green, he will be seen visiting the charity's 'Donkeys Matter' garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show earlier this year, and touring its Sidmouth base.
