Help raise funds for donkeys in need at The Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth, Devon

Take on The Donkey Sanctuary’s new walking challenge in Sidmouth, Devon and help raise funds for donkeys and mules in need.

2019 marks The Donkey Sanctuary’s 50th Anniversary and the inaugural year of the Dawdle for Donkeys fundraising walk.

Orienteer around the wider sanctuary on a family-friendly 5k or adventurous 10k course with your family, friends and work colleagues and help raise funds for donkeys in need.

As well as enjoying the stunning walks around the sanctuary, you’ll meet some of the friendly resident donkeys, showing how the money you raise directly helps improve their lives and the lives of other donkeys in the UK and further afield.

There will also be pit stops for refreshments, and entertainment and activities to keep you motivated throughout the walk!


Adults – £10 | Under 16s – FREE | Corporate team – £50 (unlimited team members)

Please pledge to raise sponsorship of £50 per adult or £500 per corporate team. Every penny raised is amazing and will directly help donkeys in need, here in the UK and around the world.

WIN! All adults who meet the suggested sponsorship target will be entered into a prize draw for the chance to win a 2-hour VIP donkey experience for up to 4 people. Similarly, corporate teams meeting the target will be entered into a prize draw for the chance to win a 4-hour group donkey experience for up to 8 people.
