Eseltjiesrus Donkey Sanctuary will soon be celebrating 15 years of their love for books and promoting a culture of reading at the annual Book Fair.
This is an event for booklovers, bargain hunters and those readers looking for special treasures. The Storytelling and Book reading Theatre for children at the Book Fair, was introduced last year to make sure that no one visiting the Fair, is deprived of the joy of reading a good book.
Every book purchased at the biggest Book Fair in the Western Cape, will aid donkeys in need. Eseltjiesrus Donkey Sanctuary provides a permanent refuge for abused, neglected and elderly donkeys just outside McGregor. Here they are given the opportunity to live out their lives with respect and dignity, surrounded by their own kind, in a protective and natural environment. Each donkey is cared for and checked daily according to their individual needs and ages. The Sanctuary is open to the public four days a week to give both adults and children the opportunity to interact with the donkeys on guided tours.
