Give us your carrots!

That is the plea from Norfolk-based charity Redwings Horse Sanctuary as it gears up to celebrate International Carrot Day next month.

The charity is asking people to donate carrots for its horses and donkeys to crunch on and enjoy at its visitor centres at Redwings Caldecott, near Great Yarmouth, and Redwings Aylsham from now until Monday, April 10.

And creative-minded people are also being asked by Redwings to donate knitted or handcrafted carrots that can be sold at one of the charity's many fundraising sales held throughout the year.

On Monday, April 10 both visitor centres will host a special carrot throw where visitors will have the chance to see the horses and donkeys enjoying some of their generously donated treats.
