Home manager, Sharon Troy, said: "It is an absolute pleasure to be able to open up our gardens to the local community and hold this Easter celebration.

"Our staff will be dressed up in Easter costumes and the donkeys will be on their very best behaviour.

“We hope everyone has lots of fun and we raise lots of money for Yorkshire Air Ambulance."

Traditional hot cross buns and Easter nests will be served, as well as hot and cold drinks.

Donkey rides are free, with a suggested £4 donation to Yorkshire Air Ambulance, the chosen charity of Yorkshire Interactive Donkeys.
