Safe Haven for Donkeys – currently celebrating its 20th year of operation – has even more cause for celebration as it today unveiled acclaimed broadcaster Kay Burley as its newest Patron.
Ms Burley, who has a particular fondness for donkeys, is a British television newsreader and presenter, who is currently a presenter on Sky News. She joins a list of respected animal champions who are currently Safe Haven Patrons, namely: HRH Princess Alexandra, the Earl of Stockton, the Rt Hon Ann Widdecombe, Julie Burchill, Des Lynam, Anthony Head and Peter Egan.
Welcoming Ms Burley to her position, Safe Haven Chair of Trustees, Andy Foxcroft said: “For a respected journalist like Kay to agree to become a Patron of our charity is tremendous news. Over the years, our work in Israel and the West Bank has saved thousands of donkeys from pain, neglect and misery and for that to be recognised by one of the UK’s best known broadcasters is truly humbling. We look forward to working with Kay and on behalf of our staff, trustees and supporters welcome her on board.”
Commenting on the news, Ms Burley said: “I have become more and more aware of the often appalling conditions in which donkeys suffer around the world. These beautiful animals are all too often overlooked and I am delighted to become a patron for Safe Haven - a charity that does so much to relieve the suffering of these wonderful creatures. I would encourage everyone to find out more about the charity’s work and give generously wherever they can.”
