Help the horses in Javea

0

THE Inn on the Green in Javea will play host to a barbecue and car raffle on Sunday April 9, raising funds for the Asociacion Protectora Amigos del Caballo (APAC) and the ISVH Bombers Voluntaries.

APAC is a Spanish horse charity, set up to defend and protect horses and offer them a second chance through adoption.

Based in La Xara – run entirely by volunteers and funded solely by donations – APAC save horses from poor living conditions and distress, an issue ever more prevalent throughout Spain due to the economic crisis.

The horses APAC rescue are:

  • Older horses who need to retire from working in riding schools – with bad legs and having served their purpose, they are no longer needed by the school.
  • Horses whose owners have fallen on hard times and cannot provide the food and care needed.
  • Many horses who are neglected, left in stalls on private land to starve to death, unseen by the public.

APAC aims to rehabilitate the horses, easing them into a new life of relaxation, freedom of a paddock and lots of food.

The event will start at 1.30pm and finish at 4.00pm.

Tickets for the barbecue are €10 whilst tickets for a chance to win the car, valued at €3,500 are just €5.

The Chevrolet Matiz prize has a one-litre petrol engine, air conditioning and electric windows. However, if the winner does not wish to take the car they can exchange it for €2,000 in cash.

Tickets are on sale at: The Salamander Charity Shop Javea; Javea Auto Sales; Villa Mia Estate Agents; Heaven Boutique; Golden Leaves International and Blue Communications.
