School Comes To Horse Around
School Comes To Horse Around EHCRC
We have had an exciting Christmas period here at the Easy horse Care Rescue Centre with our educational visit from the pupils of The Escuela Europa of Alicante. The pupils who are studying charity work as part of their course work came to spend a morning with us at our charity shop in Guardamar. Then they visited the EHCRC centre in Rojales, to meet some of our rescued residents and get an understanding of what the aims of the rescue centre are and all the things that we have to consider when running the Foundation. From raising money for food, water, vets bills to advertising for volunteers, staffing shops etc.
The pupils enjoyed meeting Bronson, Dallas, Rocky and little Cruz and saw just how well they are doing since their rescues. Some of the pupils also got to see our Vet Dorothea in action and ask her questions.
It was real pleasure to have such well-behaved children at the rescue centre; they are a credit to the Escuela Europa. We look forward to seeing them again in the New Year when they will be working with us on their own charity project to help us raise some much needed funds towards a new tractor.
We would love to take this opportunity to invite pupils from other schools in the area to come to visit our Rescue Centre, here in Rojales, Alicante. If your school, class or club wish to visit the rescue centre please contact us as we are currently taking provisional bookings for the forthcoming year. We will be offering Wednesdays afternoons tours, to schools and other organisations.
Children will have a tour of the Rescue Centre and have the opportunity to ask Sue - the founder any questions about our equines or indeed any other animals we home here at the centre.
We can provide lunch facilities for packed lunches and we also have a snack bar.
All that we ask in return is that the children enjoy their day and hopefully take back with them a new love and respect for the animals around them. As we feel that to educate the young on how to behave towards animals at a young age turns them into well rounded individuals in later life. We look forward to hearing for you.
EHCRC was also delighted to appear on Guamipi (the fantastic Canal 9 animal show). We wish to thank the film crew for their wonderful production. If you missed the show you can watch it on http://www.rtvv.es/va/guamipi/Guamipi-Cap_13_834046589.html
Over the New Year period, we are urgently looking for volunteers to help out at the Rescue Centre for a few weeks, to help cleaning feed buckets, help with field clearing and a few other bits. You do not need to be horsy person or have any horse knowledge. All the help we can get would be great even if it is just 2 hours a week or so. So if you feel like getting fit, toning up and losing some of those Christmas pounds, please give us a call.
To volunteer or to book your school trip - please contact Sue on 652021980 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
