SNOW and ice were no obstacle for Kingcup the donkey when St Francis of Assisi Church celebrated Palm Sunday in Bessacarr, Doncaster.

The 28-year-old donkey proudly led a parade of 26th Doncaster Scouts, 49th Doncaster Brownies and Rainbows, and members of the church. Vicar Richard Heard was delighted Kingcup was able to help re-enact the original Palm Sunday.

“We didn’t plan for snow and ice but thankfully a team helped clear a safe route. In the end I think the snow added to the spectacle,” he said.
