UPDATE! We were lucky enough to raise enough to have all the work done on the roof! This is only down to all of you – it is YOU that has made this happen. We are so very grateful to everyone who donated and showed their support for our donkeys. We are OVER THE MOON so we cannot thank you enough!


We would like to ask for your help for our special Christmas Project

all we want for Christmas is our Donkey Roof! 

Our Donkey Stables Building roof is over 25 years old and is unfortunately coming apart at the worst time of the year and leaking in several places. We urgently need to replace the roof so we can keep our donkeys and mules warm and dry this winter.

Unfortunately, this is going to cost over £15,000, so if anyone feels they can help us by donating to our fund, we would be over the moon! It really doesn’t matter how small a donation is, every contribution is invaluable to us and will help us to help them.

If you would like to help, please click on our special Donation Appeal link:


We take care of ten resident donkeys and three mules. They all have a chequered history, for example, Flash, who has barbwire scars on his body from his past life and Fergus, who was seen being beaten at a horse sale eight years ago and rescued by a kind person and welcomed at our Sanctuary. At Bleakholt, they have shelter, food (and treats!), full veterinary care and all the love they need for life.

We really appreciate your support so thank you so much for taking the time to help.

Here’s just a few cheeky pics of our darling donkeys!

If we are lucky enough to reach our total, anything obove the repair costs will go towards food and medication for our donkeys, so please only donate if you are happy with this!
