Westbury Lions Club 12th Annual Donkey Derby
12 Years! Would you even believe it is possible?
Our Donkey Derby continues to surprise us each and every year, with ever increasing crowds and support from the community! 11th June 2017 was met with overcast skies and showers predicted, but thankfully on the day no showers stopped play.
Well done to George King who won the final on his 8th birthday! By the way, we think 8 might be his lucky number as that was the number of the Donkey he was riding too!
This year we raised over £3500 to use in supporting local causes, and it wouldn’t have been possible without a great deal of support from local people chipping in to help in so many areas of the event.
Thank you to all those who helped us, you really have made the 2017 Donkey Derby an event to remember.
The Donkey Derby will be back next year, and we hope to take advantage of the extra space available at the wonderful venue White Horse Country Park have provided.
