Brooke announces winners of first ever DonkaDoodle Art Competition

'MY LOVE FOR HORSES' by Yashitha, age 10 (under 12 category)

This month, Brooke’s supporters voted to crown Megan, Jessica and Yashitha as winners of the Adult (18 and over), Teen (12-17) and Under 12 categories in the first ever DonkaDoodle Art Competition.

The competition, which ran from 7 May to 28 June, asked supporters to pick up their pens and paint brushes and produce art featuring a horse, donkey or mule that was inspired by an element of Brooke’s work. Entries were shortlisted by Brooke and Ambassador This Esme, who judged the Under 12s category, before supporters were given the chance to vote for their favourite designs on Brooke’s Facebook page.

'I’M ALL EARS' by Jessica, age 13 (teen category)

'BEST OF FRIENDS' by Megan Elizabeth (adult category)

The three winners, who each received a Brooke goody bag and £50 voucher for online art shop GreatArt, will now have their winning pieces sold as greeting cards on Brooke Shop later this year.

Money raised by the competition will go towards Brooke’s work making improvements to the lives of working horses, donkeys and mules and the communities that depend on them. As the Covid-19 pandemic reaches the countries Brooke works in, local communities are becoming more dependent than ever on their working animals to maintain their livelihoods and health, which is why donations have never been so important.
