The Donkey Sanctuary charity shop, For The Love Of…, in Otley is urgently seeking new volunteers to join their amazing team and give the gift of time to championing donkeys worldwide.
Two new volunteer positions have become available, a volunteer general assistant and a volunteer barista and café assistant. Both opportunities offer fantastic training and new skill opportunities such as full customer service training, visual merchandising training, barista training, food hygiene and safety training.
The For The Love Of… shop offers a unique blend of quality donated pre-loved goods and The Donkey Sanctuary’s exclusive new range gift items. There’s also the chance to pause for a delicious Fairtrade coffee, complete with delicious cakes and treats. For The Love Of… shop is a place to meet up with family and friends as well as offering an opportunity to learn about the work The Donkey Sanctuary do both here in the UK and international projects. The shop is also a place for local communities to find out about events in their area which will help support the Sanctuary’s work.
Lynne Aldridge, retail and catering manager says: ‘Volunteers are our true champions giving the precious gift of their time. They come to help in all different ways and each contribution is hugely valued.’

The Donkey Sanctuary was founded in 1969 by Dr Elisabeth Svendsen, MBE. She dedicated her life to champion donkeys, and it is through her devotion that the Sanctuary grew to be the international charity it is today.
Sadly Dr Svendsen passed away in 2011 but her memory lives on in our work, as does her eternal motto that, in everything we do, donkeys will always come first, second and third.
During the last 45 years, we have made a profound difference to the lives of donkeys and people all over the world. This is down to the drive and belief of our wonderful Founder and all of our supporters for your devotion and continued support.
Renowned for our work with donkeys the world over, it is a little known fact that we also care for the largest collective group of mules (a donkey-horse hybrid) in England.
They are open 365 days a year from 9am until dusk. Admission and parking are free. We consider that, being a charity dependent on the support of the public, visitors should be able to see our work free of charge.
