KIND-HEARTED customers have donated more than £1,000 at Dunbar Garden Centre to help donkeys.

Visitors to the garden centre handed over £1,252.50 over the festive period, with the money going towards The Scottish Borders Donkey Sanctuary.

The charity, near Melrose, aims to provide permanent accommodation for donkeys and mules in need of re-homing, whether as a result of rescue from cruelty or neglect or because the owners could no longer care for them.
