Lola Leaps for Joy

Doncaster College students and staff have held a raffle to name a newborn baby donkey, with the £100 proceeds going to charity.


The foal, now named Lola, was born a couple of weeks ago in the stables run by Doncaster College at the Northern Racing School and it was decided to hold a competition to raise funds for the students’ chosen charity.


Joy Lynch, an apprenticeship co-coordinator and lecturer at the College drew the winning name, Lola, out of a hat.


Joy, who has been at the College for 12 years said, “I looked at her photo, and she was posing perfectly, then I thought of the Barry Manilow song ‘Her name was Lola’, she was a show girl.’ And I thought it was perfect.


When I went to see her I thought she was adorable and so cute. She wanted to be the centre of attention, was full of fun, and loved to show off in the field.”


Lola is a fit and healthy young lady and loves to skip around the fields. Her mum is called Sandy and lives at the NRC and her dad lives at Chatsworth House.


The charity, Bransby Home of Rest for Horses, was nominated by students from the Animal Care and Horse Care courses run from the NRC as a result of a visit to the home during induction week.


The Bransby Home of Rest for Horses, rescue and rehabilitate equine cruelty and neglect cases.
