We all know that to improve animal welfare, we need to educate the younger generation. Without having a visitor centre this has become much more difficult for us and so we were delighted to hear from some young supporters who wanted to help us.
Limassol Junior Grammar School are very involved in learning about the environment and animal welfare. The school has its own environmental club which many of the children belong to and the group organised a fundraising bake sale which raised an amazing €125 for our donkeys.
A big thank you to everyone including the bakers and the buyers! We’re so grateful for your hard work and support.
Panikos, aged 14, is another keen young supporter who is very interested in donkeys and wants to learn as much as he can about them. He has saved his money, already adopted two of our donkeys and wants to do more to help.
When he was a very small child he used to ride his grandfather’s working donkey, which is where his love of these special creatures began. As a special treat, we took him to see some of our donkeys and during the visit we talked about what our farrier does.
Panikos told us he would like to see our farrier at work and ask him questions – who knows, he may become a farrier himself?
