Residents at Corton House enjoyed time with some very special visitors yesterday when Miniature Donkeys for Wellbeing joined us in the garden! 

Resident Helen was reminded of the donkeys who lived in a nearby field when she was a child, while Doreen agreed that animals are good for the soul!

Big thanks to the Mini Donks team for joining us and introducing us to Pippin and Jack the miniature donkeys.
