Have your say

THE YORKSHIRE Evening Post has teamed up with the Donkey Sanctuary in Leeds to offer readers the chance to adopt a donkey. Adoption makes a wonderful Christmas gift and you can choose from the three adoption donkeys at the Leeds centre; Billy O, Harbin and Ripple. The adoption makes the perfect festive gift and is a fantastic way to help thousands of rescued donkeys and mules.

The adoption pack - which costs just £3 a month for anyone not lucky enough to win this giveaway - includes two portraits, four beautiful postcards, a certificate and membership card plus two newsletters and regular updates on social media. What’s really great is that the adopter can visit their donkey for free at the centre throughout the year.

To win, simply send the name, address, phone number and email address of adopter and age (if under 16) to The deadline is noon on Monday, December 17. We also need to know which donkey you would like to adopt. To help, here’s a bit of information about each:

Billy O is Mr Popular with his donkey friends. He likes running off with buckets in his mouth and tipping the odd wheelbarrow over when no-one is looking.

Harbin is a bright little donkey who’s incredibly laid back and loves human contact.

Ripple is a gorgeous chocolate brown donkey who is utterly adorable especially when he puts his head on your shoulder and wobbles his bottom lip.

Adopting a donkey also makes a great last-minute gift as visitors can call into the centre and pick up a pack right up to Christmas Eve. You can also adopt a donkey online at or call 01395 573133.
