Island Farm Donkey Sanctuary is based at Brightwell-cum-Sotwell, Nr. Wallingford in South Oxfordshire and has been a registered charity since July 2000. The Sanctuary looks after over 130 donkeys, many of who arrived with some or all of the problems associated with neglect and abuse.

Our Donkey Adoption Scheme is a great way to support our work looking after the donkeys. Recipients will receive an adoption pack which includes a certificate, two photographs, newsletter and information about their adopted donkey. There are ten donkeys to choose from, all with their own special story. Adoptions can be done online at www.donkeyrescue.co.uk or please ask for an adoption form to be posted.

Including a charity in your will is a way to bring dignity, meaning and purpose to a life well lived. Many of us will have specific charitable causes that we like to support and while we may give to these causes during our lifetimes, we can also provide for them after we have gone. Many charities refer to these gifts as legacies or charitable bequests. Leaving a charity gift in your will is a way of showing you care and want to help. As gifts to charities are exempt from inheritance tax, this can be a particularly tax-efficient way to not only benefit a cause you care for, but will also reduce the amount of inheritance tax payable after your death, which also helps your other beneficiaries.

Of course, family and friends come first, but after you have given them a helping hand, please will you consider helping Island Farm Donkey Sanctuary?

The Sanctuary is open every day from 11am to 4pm and visitors are welcome. For more, why not visit the sanctuary's Facebook or youtube channel.

The word is woefully over-used, but we think you’ll allow us to describe Bryan Adams as a genuine rock legend. Creating hit after hit since his debut in the early 80s, he has consistently kept his sense of self and his distinctive musical style relevant without compromise. We were absolutely over the moon when Bryan chose to speak with OX, exclusively, ahead of his headlining performance at the Cornbury Festival in July.

It’s a strange thing to be confronted by a famous face whether in the flesh or over Zoom; you never know when you’ll be a little starstruck. Anton du Beke has spent most autumn weekends in my living room for the past eight years but despite that, I had no idea what to expect when we arranged to speak ahead of his ‘Audience With’ at the Wycombe Swan in May.
