We have received some great donations recently from a mixture of fund-raising events. At the beginning of October the ramblers held a Horse and Hound sponsored walk around Los Llanos in Coin and we were subsequently presented with 900 very welcome euros for the Centre (half of the proceeds going to the local galgo rescue and half to ARCH). The new t-shirts were out in force that day!


At the end of the month our very own Leon was instrumental in holding an alternative fashion show in Alhaurin el Grande where several Archies strutted their stuff in steampunk style.  The proceeds were shared among three charities and the Centre received 308 euros.

And on the first day of November, in brilliant sunshine, ARCH co-founders and long-time supporters Mike and Heather Munden held their annual charity golf day for us at the Marbella Golf and Country Club which raised a magnificent 1850 euros.   This was particularly welcome as we are currently looking to put up a field shelter in our largest paddock before the winter weather arrives – as it must eventually. Many thanks also to sponsors Combitrans Mudanzas in Marbella and the Hotel Doña Catalina in San Pedro.

Thanks are also due to Manuela and Alison who valiantly covered for Jill and Elly who were both on well-deserved holidays last month. They coped brilliantly with the “normal” challenges at the Centre and the unexpected problems which always arise. Well done both!

And last but not least, thanks to our current and new volunteers and supporters, including all those who set up birthday fundraisers on their Facebook pages. We could not function without your help.
