Donegal Donkey Sanctuary are running a fundraising barn dance this Friday night ((July 4th) to help towards replacement of vital equipment stolen in a robbery at their premises in early April.
Last April, €4,500 worth of equipment, including the quad trailer and feed barrow along with a lot of smaller day to day animal handling equipment were stolen from the sanctuary, and the owners’ home was also burgled and ransacked.
The sanctuary, located at Castledooey near Raphoe, is run entirely by voluntary donations. In the last five years, the sanctuary has looked after more than 200 donkeys. At any time, the sanctuary can be home to between 40 and 70 donkeys.
The Barn Dance, which has an American Independence Day theme, will be held in the new barn, built with funding from the LEADER programme. It’s a great opportunity for people have a look at the facilities available at the centre and get some idea of how it operates to rescue and rehome hundreds of otherwise unwanted animals.
Music is by the very popular David Craig and his Band with supporting disco. BBQ and bar on the nIght, starting at 10pm ‘til late!
Garth Brooks tickets to be raffled on the night, western style dress optional!
