We are so pleased that both our shops are up and running again. They are a vital source of income for the charity and we are so happy to welcome our valued customers back. The majority of clothing in both shops is only 1€ and with dresses at 3€ there are some great items to be had. Both shops have a House of Henrietta rail, which have quality new, or nearly new, items of clothing and accessories. You can also take a look online via Facebook on our House of Henrietta page and we can post items anywhere.
We are positive and loving our shops. However we are still in need of more volunteers. Please take a moment to think whether you may be able to help in either of our shops. We are an easy-going bunch and only ask 4 hours per day once a week (more if you wish!). No previous experience is necessary, as long as you are happy to muck in, as some of the jobs required are cleaning, sorting, pricing, and serving. Spanish is an advantage, but not essential. We would love to welcome you on to one of our teams.
If you have been thinking about it for a while, go on do it, give me a call on 690 906 565 and you are helping the donkeys.
Donkeys are the smallest member of the equine family. They are intelligent and can live up to the age of 50. With an ability to sense danger, they will dig their heels in and not move (hence the saying ‘stubborn as a mule’). Originating from the deserts of the Middle East and Africa, they are built for hot weather. Their lovely big ears help keep their bodies cool and they are capable of hearing another donkey up to 60 miles away! What amazing animals they are! However, just to contradict myself completely, there is a breed of Giant Donkey called an American Mammoth that weighs-in at around a huge 590kg and is approaching a whopping 17 hands.
I am glad I don’t have any of those to feed!
I do have several donkeys that need rehoming. They make fantastic pets, are good with each other and other animals as companions, but not so good at being on their own.
Our stable door is firmly shut at the moment. We have no more room until some of these lovely creatures move on. Every day I get calls and messages of abandoned horses, ponies, mules and donkeys and it breaks my heart that I can’t help them.
We are so desperate to get La Paca up and running. Every month we get a step nearer and another hoop is jumped through. There are quite a few more to go, but it is all going in the right direction.
Donations can be made via Paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org
I will be back on Camposol B Car Park every Monday from 11.30-1.30pm to collect donations. Monday 15th June was my first one for nearly 4 months and I missed seeing my regular Monday Club.
You can also drop off items at either of our shops in Mazarrón (Mon-Fri 10.30am-1.30pm) and Roldan (11am-2pm).
I am so happy things are getting back to normal and look forward to seeing you.
