Burnham Donkey Derby

The Burnham Donkey Derby was held every year from 1990 up to 2019 but was cancelled due to COVID-19 in 2020.
We held 'donkey related' events during May & June 2021 in its place.

The Burnham Donkey Derby has been organised by Burnham Beeches Rotary for almost 30 years and during that time over £350,000 has been raised and donated to local charities and needy causes.

Unfortunately we have had to cancel the last two years due to the covid-19 crisis and this has resulted in a massive shortfall in the funds raised. If you would like to help with a donation, no matter how small, please follow this link:

Make a donation using Virgin Money Giving

All donations will go to our registered charity for use in the local community. Unlike other charities we do not make any deductions for running costs.
