Leaving Goring before 8am, Daisy and George, two little donkeys from Gatehampton Road, set off for London with their owners Julie and Ann Broadhurst. A lot of grooming took place, especially to George who is supposedly white, but spends most of his time coated in mud. Parking opposite The Ritz in Piccadilly, the donkeys were lined up before joining in the passing parade.

We accompanied ‘The Donkey Breed Society’ which was set up with charity status in 1967. This year they are celebrating their Golden Jubilee after 50 years of improving the lives of donkeys. The parade made its way through London, passing Trafalgar Square, Downing Street and numerous landmarks, such as Big Ben.

It finished in Parliament Square, and we made our way back, stopping off for a few photographs outside Buckingham Palace.
