Here at the Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary, we have a fabulous team of volunteers but due to our expanding business, we are looking to increase that team of volunteers in order to continue our work with abandoned and homeless donkeys.
Our work has the following strands:
Looking after the health and welfare of our 120 abandoned equines Working with visitors running programmes for children’s groups Visiting schools, groups on the island taking donkeys to residential centres
We are particularly looking for people who are interested in the following three areas of our work:
FARM AND EQUINE WORK
SHOP AND CAFE WORK
SCHOOL ACTIVITY PROGRAMME
There are also spaces for other areas of our work, where volunteers would be greatly appreciated – for example horsebox driving, meeting and greeting visitors and maintenance etc.
In all areas of work, we offer training and a uniform after a settling in period.
