Dillon the donkey is making a guest appearance at the Wesley Memorial Methodist Church annual live nativity stable this year.
The Epworth event has proved to be a popular attraction and includes Dillon along with sheep and a nativity tableau in the church grounds.
Reverend David Leese said: “Any donations given to the stable are for the Red Cross Ebola appeal. Our thanks to Susan Owen for Dillon the donkey, and Patrick Bradbury for the sheep.”
The stable will be in place until December 27.
