The Gig In The Garden 2011

The Wonky Donkeys

conga timemartin giving his all

The gig in the garden held at the Osborne Centre on 30th July was a huge success. A local group The Wonky Donkeys played popular songs from the 60s, onwards. The set lasted for about two hours with a break which gave us the chance to get our picnics out. The second half of the gig finished with some of the members given the opportunity to put their singing talents to those present, we sang the popular 1980s Tears For Fears number SHOUT, the outcome, Britain has talent!!
Guest reporter Yvonne Trapp's views
The M.S. centre's first Gig in the Garden featured a local band 'The Wonky Donkeys', who kindly offered to perform free of charge. This enabled the centre to raise valuable funds which are always much needed. The audience arrived laden with food and drink, and some arrived with hampers the Queen would have been proud of. The weather couldn't have been kinder to us, not too hot, but most importantly we had no rain. At 3 o'clock the concert started and everyone really enjoyed the music, some even stopped eating and were seen to sing along, although whether they were in tune is debatable. Feedback has been very positive and everyone is really looking forward to next year's gig, as the band has already offered to come back. A huge thank you to the band members for their time and talent, and for a really good afternoon's entertainment. Also many thanks to the committee for arranging this event.
The concert raised £462.

The Donkey Sanctuary:

Dear Paul and the rest of The Wonky Donkeys.

Thank you so much for giving up your time on Sunday 14th August to play at our Donkey Summer Fair. Weren't we lucky with the weather? The fair was a huge success and everyone I spoke to seemed to be enjoying the music.

Accounts tell me that we raised around £11,500!! Just imagine how many donkeys and EST children we can help with those funds!                                                                                               



Thank you once again for your kind support; everybody thought the band was a great addition to the fair, I hope to see you again next year.                                                                                  



Kind Regards                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Claire Shapcott
