Bobby the donkey from Saddleworth Llama and Donkey Trekking Centre visited Ashton Sixth Form College to help tell the story of Palm Sunday and Easter. The visit was arranged by the Rev. Jean Thurston, the college chaplain.

Bobby was signed in at reception and took two hours to get around the college. Many of the students took  "selfies"  from their mobile phones and he had plenty of food during his stay as he was served up with carrots and apples from the college canteen.

Reverend Thurston said " it was a great way of engaging with the students and telling the Easter story, the 2,000 students had a great time meeting Bobby. "
