At 7.30pm on Thursday 10th September a short memorial service was held for all commemorated on our Memorial Walls.
The service, which was led by Rev Janice Chilton was much appreciated by everyone. There will be another service in September in 2016. We will be making this remembrance an annual event.
Visitors to Island Farm Donkey Sanctuary (IFDS) will be familiar with the memorial wall opposite the barn on the left-hand side when walking towards the yard. The metal plaques commemorate much-loved friends, including pets and other animals, who have passed from physical life but live on in the affections of those who knew them. Friends and supporters of the sanctuary have had these plaques added to the wall both as a lasting tribute to their loved ones and to support the donkeys via payment for inclusion here. In addition to maintaining the memorial wall itself, IFDS holds regular short services that take place about once a year.
If you are interested in purchasing a plaque to commemorate a friend, relative or pet (minimum donation £100) you can download an application form or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with details of your request. Alternatively, and if you have any further questions about this, you can call the sanctuary on 01491 833938.
