2013 Donkey Derby is Great Success

Brillian sunshine, record crowds and a great sense of fun!

The 18th Donkey Derby proved to be even more successful than last year's record event. 4300 people made their way to Eling Recreation Ground to enjoy our big fundraising event.

They weren't disappointed, as the Donkeys proved to be even more playful than ever, and even more unwilling to complete the course.  Click here to see the Daily Echo article.  James Ketchell opened the event, taking time out from his preparations for cycling across America, and entertained the crowds, especially the children.
Of course none of this would happen without the hundreds of hours put in by our volunteers, before, during and after the event - a big 'Thank You' to them for all their hard work which resulted in record receipts, helping us complete our new HQ, Aquativity, at Testwood Lakes.
