As you read this, we’ll be well into May, but the early deadlines mean that I am writing this the day after Palm Sunday. And what a glorious day it was. We gathered at 10am on Sunday morning at the Cavendish Hall and with relief I saw that our two donkeys from the Donkey Sanctuary had arrived. Last year they couldn’t be with us because their trailer was broken, and this year, on the Saturday before the big day, we had another near-disaster after the car pulling their trailer on the way home from another event broke down. We spent an agonising afternoon trying to help with transport arrangements because the children would have been so disappointed if the donkeys had been unable to get here. But by 5pm I received a phone call from a very relieved volunteer at the Sanctuary to say that an alternative car had been arranged.
