Children at two Exmouth schools were visited by William and Harry recently – but not the one’s you might expect.
Pupils at Littleham and Bassett’s Farm primary schools were treated to a half-day visit by the donkeys, which share their name with the dukes of Cambridge and Sussex.
The animals were brought into the school playgrounds by staff from The Donkey Sanctuary, in Sidmouth, as part of its education outreach programme.
Dean Hancock, visitor services assistant at the animal welfare charity, talked to pupils about the donkeys.
“The children were very keen to ask questions and interested to hear about the work we do,” said Dean.
A spokesperson for Bassetts Farm added: “The children really enjoyed being ‘hands on’ with the donkeys while learning how to care for them.
“They particularly enjoyed finding out about how donkeys show their feelings, what they eat and how to look after them.”
