Crocheters, get your hooks out to help our four-legged friends! The Donkey Sanctuary is appealing for animal lovers to crochet a whole herd of donkey-themed projects to help raise money for the charity’s essential work rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing donkeys and mules around the world. Visit www.donkeyworld.org.uk where you’ll find free patterns for donkey-themed mobile phone socks, pocket tissue holders, keyrings and bag charms, then raid your stash and get crocheting. The finished pieces will all be sold in the charity’s visitor centre and its online shop. To get a free copy of the pattern booklet with full instructions for making the donkey-themed crochet projects, call Marian or Ruth on 01395 578222 or email VFR@thedonkeysanctuary.org.uk.
