DBS AGM 2016

 

The AGM took place on Saturday 19th November 2016 in Newcastle followed by the Annual Dinner on Saturday evening.  Sincere thanks to our hosts who went to great lengths to make us feel welcome and provide a beautifully decorated room for our function.

 

The meeting was well supported followed by presentation of awards to recognise our members' and their donkeys' activities; as was the dinner with amazing entertainment by a magician and dancing afterwards.  Thank you to everyone who made the weekend so enjoyable, and to the members who travelled to the meeting.    If you would like to see a selection of photographs from the weekend, please use the following link

THE BARNABAS TROPHY

 

is awarded to a junior member making progress.

 

Do you know a young person - aged 12 to 18 years old who is a junior member and helping you with your donkeys or looking after their own?

 

Later in 2016 we will be asking for nominations for the Barnabas Trophy. Your junior should show an improvement in their general donkey knowledge and be actively involved with donkeys in a capacity other than showing. Nominations should be sent to the Chairman of the Education and Youth committee by the end of September 2016.

 

Junior Camp

Junior Donkey Sanctuary Camp will not be taking place in 2016, however it is hoped that alternative activities in the regions can be planned. Watch this space....................

 

The Horse Trust are conducting an online survey in conjunction with the RVC in relation to Euthanasia.  The aim of the survey is to identify the circumstances and factors that lead to the decision being made to euthanase horses in the UK.

 

In addition to horse owners, the survey is also aimed at veterinary surgeons, charities and other professionals that participate in the decision-making process.

 

The survey should take 5-10 minutes to complete and the results will be used to help inform guidance and advice that can be used to support people that may have to make this decision in the future.
