SOME of the younger donkeys at the Lockwood Centre in Wormley are now available for re-homing as part of a new RSPCA initiative.

The specialist equine sanctuary provides a peaceful home and rehabilitation centre for around 20 donkeys on tje 35-acre site in Hatch Lane.

Originally established by Wormley residents John and Kay Lockwood, it is one of the UK's oldest donkey centres.

It has been run by the RSPCA both as a sanctuary for donkeys and also to rescue and re-home horses and ponies that have been badly treated.

Centre manager Anna Hemmings told The Herald: "Lockwood will start to re-home donkeys for the first time since the centre was left to the RSPCA in 2005 We have reached our maximum capacity of donkeys we can hold on site, and many of our younger donkeys are now suitable for rehoming."
