Join the fun at Del Boy's birthday party on 14th May!

Celebrate Adoption Star Del Boy's birthday at Redwings

Our wheeling and dealing Adoption Star donkey Del Boy can’t wait to say “bonjour” to his many fans at his birthday party on Sunday 14th May.

Taking place at our Essex visitor centre, Redwings Ada Cole, you can help our cheeky long-eared friend celebrate his 15th birthday from 11.30am when his party will kick-off with a cushty groom.

He’ll then get to parade in front of all his visitors, enjoy plenty of good ol' cuddles and scratches, and scoff his very own scrummy cake. Lovely jubbly!

You can view a full schedule of Del Boy’s party here

Del Boy and his donkey partner in crime Rodney arrived at Redwings from an animal education centre that sadly had to close due to the recession. At Redwings we have an open door policy for these adorable creatures due to donkeys’ complex care needs so we were delighted to welcome the pair to the Sanctuary.

The lovable duo never fail to entertain staff and visitors alike with endless games of chase around their paddock and are always ‘on the make’ for a cuddle or two!

After the party, why not explore Redwings Ada Cole further and enjoy even more cuddles with some of the other 70-plus donkeys, mules, horses and ponies who call the visitor centre home.

You can also tuck into your own slice of cake in our Nosebag CafĂ© and there’s a gift shop offering a wide range of souvenirs with all proceeds supporting the 1,500 rescued horses, ponies, donkeys and mules in Redwings’ care nationwide.

Redwings Ada Cole, near Harlow, is open every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, 10am to 4pm (closed Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays). Entry is free and dogs on leads are welcome.

We hope to see you there. You know it makes sense!
