Donkey’s Day Out

On Saturday the 12th of May, Red Funnel’s Charity of the Year, the Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary brought two donkey’s from their site in Wroxall, Isle of Wight to the Southampton Ferry Terminal.

Joseph and Merlin settled into their mobile pen, located just outside of the Ticket Office and greeted customers as they arrived.

Lots of customers stopped to say hello, learn more about the charity and speak to the team throughout the afternoon, and Joseph and Merlin seemed to love the attention!

We hope to have more donkeys visit our locations over the summer, to raise awareness of the charity, as well as bringing extra memories to customers as they pass through.

“It was great to watch so many customers interacting with the donkeys and the charity members who attended. Many of them were able to learn about the charity’s cause and how much they do for the local community, which was wonderful to see.”
