Follow the glow and discover enchanting tales from The Donkey Sanctuary this Christmas.

Join the sanctuary’s magical star on a journey of discovery, shining a light on the stories of donkeys all around the world.

Find the 9 boards located around the sanctuary and using the clues to help you, spot the Christmas items hidden on each board to complete the Christmas crossword.
You’ll finish the trail at the ‘Glow Room’, where you’ll discover a fairytale ending for three little donkeys, Gilly, Holly and Snowy. Once you’ve followed the star that glows in your eyes, head to the Gift Shop to collect your prize.

This magical activity combines festive family fun, exercise and brainpower and is just £5 per trail, including a Christmas gift on completion. Head to the Gift Shop to pick up a trail sheet and away you go on your journey.

Plus with daily talks, scenic walks, engaging exhibits, award-winning gardens and, of course, hundreds of adorable donkeys to meet, there’s so much to explore with your own herd, whatever the weather.
From humble beginnings as a UK rescue mission over 50 years ago, The Donkey Sanctuary has grown into one of the world’s largest equine welfare charities.

General admission and parking at the sanctuary is FREE (donations welcome). Dogs on leads are welcome.
