Rescue centre deeply saddened
The EHCRC Foundation were deeply saddened to hear of the passing away of Solvi Jansen in the early hours of Christmas morning.
Solvi and her twin sister Kate, who were simply known as "the twins" by hundreds of people that knew them because of their tremendous fundraising efforts throughout the Costa Blanca.
They truly have been incredible supporters and benefactors of the rescue centre from almost the beginning. Sue Weeding cofounder said without the twins the rescue centre would never have survived in the early days.
Indeed many of the early rescues were made possible because of their fundraising and their own personal donations. Solvi had been fighting cancer for a long while and even towards the end she still continued to make the labels for the donation tins and sit for hours sticking them on the tins of which there are thousands throughout the Costa Blanca.
One of the great highlights for the EHCRC and also for Solvi and Kate, was not only winning the pride of Spain Special Achievement Award in 2010 but the surprise donation that Solvi and Kate made on that very special night of 10.000Euros.
Because of Solvi Jansens' incredible kindness and compassion there are many happy horses who will be living the rest of their lives here at the rescue centre.
And every day when we look at our very own special Solvi the horse, who was rescued in April this year and named in honour of Solvi Jansen, we will always remember with love the extraordinary person she really was and all that she has done for us and all the animals here at the rescue centre.
