International animal welfare charity The Donkey Sanctuary is joining forces with popular East Devon attraction Seaton Tramway to offer a promotion for those enjoying their summer holidays in the area.
The charity’s headquarters near Sidmouth in Devon are open to the public 365 days a year, free of charge. As part of the new initiative, one customer from every group of passengers travelling on the tram can also add a free hot drink and giant chocolate cookie in The Donkey Sanctuary’s Hayloft restaurant to their day out. Visitors who make a purchase in The Donkey Sanctuary’s visitor centre and shop will also be given a voucher entitling one child per group to travel free with Seaton Tramway.
Emma Gill, PR Officer for The Donkey Sanctuary, says: “The Donkey Sanctuary is pleased to be working with Seaton Tramway to promote this exciting special offer for the summer holidays. I hope that locals and visitors alike will take advantage of this offer, and enjoy some great days out at two of the area’s popular visitor attractions. As a charity, we are always keen to invite people to see the work that we do, and I hope that this offer, along with our fun-packed programme of summer events, will encourage lots of people to visit The Donkey Sanctuary over the coming months.”
Jenny Nunn, Managing Director of Seaton Tramway adds: “I am delighted that we are teaming up with such a well respected institution as the Donkey Sanctuary and to be able to offer this great deal to visitors to both attractions, as it is important not just for us but the local community as a whole that visitors to the area see the best of what East Devon has to offer. At the Tramway we have a fun-filled seaside themed week ahead with the Pirate Tram, bouncy castle, Punch & Judy Show and barbecues at Colyton Station, as well as a chance to ride on the new pink tram officially launched last Saturday. This is also a fantastic time from the top deck of a tram to see some of the wildlife the Axe Estuary has to offer, such as kingfisher, little egret, heron and cormorant.”
Both offers apply to one person per group, and are valid seven days a week excluding Bank Holidays and special events. Further details about events at both attractions can be found at www.thedonkeysanctuary.org.uk and www.tram.co.uk.
