Leave a lasting gift

Donkeys in distress at home and around the world need our help. And in 20, 30 or 40 years time, it’s likely they’ll still need our help. Harshly treated donkeys, abandoned donkeys, wretched donkeys. They all need help.

Leaving a gift in your Will is a way of showing you care and want to help. And after showing you care for your family and friends and want to give them a helping hand, consider helping the donkeys by leaving a lasting gift in your Will.

It doesn’t have to be a large sum to make a difference.

As long as donkeys need my help they shall have it.
Elisabeth Svendsen

So here’s to those who change the world.

The selfless devoted ones, the compassionate ones, those whose conviction protects the abused, the overworked, the unwanted and unloved.

Here’s to those with the courage to right the wrongs.

What will your legacy be?
