The Santa Pola (Gran Alacant) council has strengthened its relationship with the Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre after meeting with co-founder Sue Weeding and local business supporters Karen Webster of G.A. Homefinders with Barry and Sandra Lane from the Gran Alacant Advertiser on August 28.
The Councillor for Gran Alacant Loreto Cascales has pledged the councils support towards the Rojales centre in recognition of their important work to prevent animal cruelty and neglect in the Alicante province.
“They have given our information to the local police so now if there is a situation involving horses and donkeys in their area, we can be sure that we will be informed very quickly,” Sue said.
“We were also very impressed to learn that the council banned circuses with animals two years ago, as well as any type of bullfighting or running with the bulls. It’s great to know the council is so forward-thinking and supportive when it comes to animal welfare issues.”
Sue thanked the Gran Alacant community for their tremendous support over the past few years, especially the volunteers who regularly muck out stables and the group donating their time to staff the new Gran Alacant charity shop, which opened in July.
“We’ve had massive support for the shop, which already has a huge following despite being open for only a few weeks,” Sue said. “The locals love it because it is the only charity shop in Gran Alacant.”
The Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre welcomes any donations and sponsorships to help support their important work. Large donated items such as furniture can be collected from your house and each shop also offers a delivery service for large items purchased from the charity shops. Please contact the charity shop hotline on 652 021 980 for more information about furniture pick-ups and volunteering.
Every single cent donated to EHCRC or spent in their eight charity shops across the Alicante province goes towards the feeding and care of the many horses, ponies and donkeys that live at the centre.
The EHCRC charity shops are located in La Zenia, Los Montesinos, La Siesta, Ciudad Quesada, Guardamar, La Marina, Pilar de Horadada and Gran Alacant.
