Teddy bears' picnic time at the Donkey Sanctuary

Preparations are well-underway, and excitement is building for the great Teddy Bear's Picnic at The Donkey Sanctuary in Liscarroll which takes place this year on Thursday, July 5.

This is a super family event that is not to be missed. Activities include colouring corner, bouncy castles, sand art, face painting, treasure hunt, donkey grooming and lots more.

You can pay a visit to the Teddy Bear Hospital, where the expert vet team will give your special bear a check-up. There will be super prizes on the day, so don't forget to enter your teddy in the competitions for best-dressed teddy or best look-a-like teddy and owner.

You may also take the time to enjoy a long and leisurely walk around the beautiful walkways and meet the donkeys and mules of all ages. You are very welcome to bring your dog along once he is kept on the lead. As always, teas, coffees, snacks, ice creams and donkey-related souvenirs can be bought in the Visitor Centre. All funds raised go towards the care of welfare of the donkeys and mules. The picnic will run from 12pm o 3pm, and admission is €5 per child. Adults go free. Don't forget your teddy bear, picnic and blanket!
