Cheeky donkey duo are celebrating their birthday!

Things to do with the kids this summer

Mischievous Adoption Stars Wiggins and Wacko can’t wait to greet everyone at Redwings Aylsham on Sunday 12th June when they will be celebrating their joint 12th birthdays.

From 11am, you’ll be able to watch the playful pair enjoy a good ol’ groom and give them lots of cuddles during their parade before seeing which one of them can scoff the most birthday cake!

Did you know outgoing Wiggins was named in honour of Sir Bradley Wiggins having arrived at Redwings shortly after the athlete cycled to victory at the London Olympics in 2012? Poor Wiggins had been abandoned by his owner on a livery yard, meanwhile desperately lonely Wacko was living with just his owner for company after the yard where he was living was forced to close.

Donkeys need friends and at Redwings we have an open-door policy for these adorable long-eared creatures to ensure their complex care needs are met.

We think it must be fate which saw Wiggins and Wacko arrive at Redwings within two days of each other because they not only found a new forever home with us but also best friends in each other.

After enjoying the party, you can take a stroll around the visitor centre which boasts scenic walks around two nature ponds, as well as 50 other rescued residents who would love some extra fuss and attention too!
