Long-time horse rescue centre supporter helps raise yet more money for animal welfare
A coffee and cake fundraiser organised held at Laguna Green’s Bamboo Lounge has raised €353 for the Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre at Rojales.
The October 27 event was organised by long-time supporter Elaine Sissons, who earlier this year completed a sky diving jump to celebrate her 60th birthday, raising €571 for the rescue centre in the process.
Elaine is now in training for the gruelling 26-mile Yorkshire Three Peaks run next year, again hoping to raise money to support the rescue centre’s animal welfare work.
“What an amazing person she is,” said centre co-founder Sue Weeding. “She volunteers at our charity shops, she’s sky dived, now she’s training for the Three Peaks. What on earth is she going to do to top that one?”
The Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre relies entirely on donations to fund its important animal welfare work, including the feeding and care of the centre’s more than 90 horses, ponies and donkeys rescued from abuse, neglect and abandonment.
Donations of cash or items for the centre’s network of eight charity shops across the Alicante province are gratefully welcomed. A pick-up service is available to collect large donated items such as furniture and each shop also offers a delivery service for large items purchased in-store.
Anyone interested in making a donation, becoming a long-term sponsor, or volunteering at the rescue centre or in the charity shops can call Sue on 652 021 980.
The Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre, located just outside Rojales at Partido Lo Garriga, 59, opens to the public on the first Sunday of every month between 1pm and 4pm. Free horse tours run throughout the afternoon and refreshments are available in the café. For more details and directions, please visit www.easyhorsecare.net.
