The RSPCA Open Day 2018 took place last Sunday, and Lucy's UK Donkey Foundation was there! The Open Day is always a really enjoyable day - it’s a very big, well organised event that runs like clockwork. All due to a great team of staff and volunteers and it is a real credit to all concerned. Last Sunday was a a glorious afternoon, very hot but with a nice gentle breeze. We had lots of visitors and are very pleased to say our children’s books and beautiful cards supplied by a
Yesterday, Lucy and her small team went to El Founduk, a town in the Palestinian West Bank, in order to help alleviate some of the suffering for hard working donkeys and horses. It was quite a drive to the town - across the Israeli border, through lots of villages, past many settlements... off the main road and down into valleys then up into hills, driving though tiny, narrow little streets and eventually, they were there.

She was seen by one of the border patrol army units standing harnessed to a cart, for two days under the boiling sun without water. They unh
Lucy and the volunteers at the 4 acre sanctuary are struggling with the heavy manual work without the use of a tractor for digging, scraping, spreading sand, lifting/moving heavy hay bales and dealing with the muck heap. Unfortunately, a second hand tractor is very expensive in the Holy Land, costing £8000 to £9000. We need to raise this money as soon as possible. Can you please help? For a donation of £25 or more to help purchase a tractor, supporters can choose either: A) A
He was found at the Syrian border and so cruelly had both his eyes gouged out and was stabbed each side of his neck. We are determined to do everything in our power to keep the sanctuary going so that Lucy can always be there for tortured, abused and neglected donkeys who need her help, like Zachariah. Here’s a little update for the many who love him to show his amazing progress. He is less and less fearful with time. Lucy always needs to talk as she approaches him and so
