Backin Donny is written by Donny bird, Rachael Butler.
For me growing up in Doncaster involved spending way too much time dreaming about how I was going to get the hell out of there. It came as little surprise that by 19 I was studying in the USA, at 22 I was living in London and traveling the world for work, then at 27 I’d packed up and moved to the other side of the world.
Yet something about Donny always drew me back. The six years I spent living in Sydney were some of the best of my life. Understandably the decision to move back to Doncaster was pretty hard, but I found it harder trying to explain this decision to family and friends who’d look at me with that tiltered head look and say “BUT WHY?” They couldn’t understand how I could swap running on Sydney’s beautiful beaches for Armthorpe pit top not to mention how I’d cope with the weather. But what I have learnt on all my travels is, home is home and…
Exploring far away places may make remarkable memories. But it is in choosing to make the best of where we are, that makes a remarkable life.
So here I am, back in Donny and out to explore all that this great town and its fine people have to offer. Spreading the word that Donny does indeed have a lot going for it.
