What is this?

On the first working Monday of every month (Monday is one of my busiest days) I will donate the daily income of Chocolate Tortoise to a selected charity, and post to this blog detailing the charity chosen. This blog is not intended to tell the world how generous I am. I am less generous than many people. The blog is intended to firstly log who I have donated to, and secondly to hopefully inspire others to do the same, or similar. For more information, see my first post.

July 2014–Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary

The chosen charity for July is the Donkey Sanctuary on the Isle of Wight.

We recently went to one day of the Isle of Wight music festival. After a long, but enjoyable day listening to the bands on the Saturday, we spent the Sunday visiting a couple of places on the island. One of these was the Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary. As you may guess from the name, this is a sanctuary for donkeys. It was a big, clean and well run place. I especially liked the fact that entry is free, and while they would obviously like you to donate, there is no pressure. Dogs are welcome too, and the volunteers there guiding you to places to park and helping out around the place were very friendly and helpful.

It’s ‘just’ a place with fields full of donkeys, but does a great job and it’s great that they open their doors to visitors. Well worth stopping by, even for just half an hour, to give your support. If nothing else, seeing a load of donkeys running around in big fields, well cared for, should put a smile on your face.
