Firstly, thanks to @domthehornet for letting me post this here. As most of you know, my youngest is disabled and he is just starting to attend St Luke's (these kids start their school change early because with their disabilities it can take a long time to transition them into a new environment). The place is wonderful and is often, euphemistically, described as a "rural school" - parts of it are basically a farm/smallholding where a lot of the kids "learn" from looking after animals and plants. I used inverted commas as for some of the pupils their education is just trying to make sense of the world around them. I'll let one of the St Luke's staff tell you what happened: The cops have been pretty good and have been arranging for collections to pay for the return of the donkeys. Myself and the kids would be very grateful if you could spare anything to replace this essential and worthwhile resource that the school (and children) has lost by visiting their just giving page for more details and where it's claimed that even just sharing their appeal on facebook is worth something. Thanks in advance for anything you can do for them.
