A thousand hearts beating for the donkeys: it was a huge emotion to see you so numerous, smiling (and, at times, a little moved) at the Great Summer Festival, which this year coincided with the culmination of the celebrations for our first 10 years of opening.
Many thanks we want to make: first of all, to the volunteers (like Nicolò, who came back from Thailand, where he lives, for our anniversary!) and to all the staff of the Refuge. To the mayor of Sala Biellese Roberto Blotto and to the vice mayor Stefania Massera for having participated and for having discussed with Linda Edwards, Executive Director of Operations of the Donkey Sanctuary, our most welcome guest, the future developments of the sanctuary. To all the journalists who covered the event. Our sponsors Lauretana, Menabrea, Massera and Ipercoop. And, of course, to all the people who arrived, traveling a few or hundreds of kilometers, who took part in guided tours, brushed and dispensed cuddles to the donkeys, feeling the Rifugio.
The party is over, but not the enthusiasm you brought us; the same that will mark the next steps of our Rifugio. Best wishes!
