D is for Donkeys
Each Tuesday for the 6 weeks of the school summer holidays husband Bob runs a Donkey Derby in aid of local charities. This is the 29th year and in all that time there have been very few occasions when the event has been called off due to bad weather.
Today has seen darkening skies and downpours of rain, in fact at one point it was a deluge and the streets were like rivers! However, a few minutes ago Bob set off to see if the event could take place this evening. Fingers crossed as it is very popular and raises approximately £1,500 each week which will be split between 3 local charities.
Here is a picture of some of the donkey runners enjoying a diet of hay for their dinner (lunch)!
