While much of Spain enjoys their summer holiday break (which means our charity shops get very quiet), little has slowed down here at our rescue centre.
Over the past two months we have rescued four new ponies and one donkey – more on that below. We also had mundane but significantly inconvenient incidents like our stable fridge breaking down. And despite the peculiar weather and our lack of a mini digger, our new boundary fence has continued to take shape as we finally, finally, reached our €20,000 fundraising target.
Our secure boundary fence fundraiser was our biggest fundraiser to date, and we can’t thank you all enough for supporting it. All up, more than 200 donors contributed to the campaign, with donations coming from as far away as America, Canada, Thailand and Singapore. That included one very kind donor, who wished to remain anonymous, who this month donated the final €800 needed to hit the overall fundraising target.
This month we also launched our euro drive, to help us raise much needed funds as profits from our charity stores slowed down. We were overwhelmed to have received an incredible 74 donations in one day from you, our supporters. Thank you so very much.
