Running our 2 shops takes a lot of time and effort on the part of our many volunteers and they form the backbone of our fundraising activities. Both shops are open 6 days a week with ideally a minimum of 2 people per shop to staff them. It would be a dream to have 3 volunteers per shift as this enables any sickness or holidays to be covered without too much of a problem. We are always looking out for people who would be able to help in either of our shops. The work is basic and varied which includes sorting and pricing donations, preparing items for sale, creating displays within the shop, answering customer enquiries and serving customers on the till and general tidying, ensuring the shop looks clean and presentable. We are a friendly lot and would love to welcome some new members to our team. We only ask for 4 hours per week, though of course we will never stop you if you wish to do more! If you are interested and would like to chat further about it them, please get in touch with me on 690 906 565
If anyone has any new ideas for us to increase the revenue in our shops or suggestions for fund raisers, we would be happy to listen. Our 1€ winter clothing sale has been incredibly successful, but there are still many items left. Come and take a final look before we change over to our summer stock.
Please come and see us in our shop in Roldan (10.30am-2.30pm) or Mazarrón Town (10am-2pm) opposite the Medical Centre.
Bombom is continuing to do well. She is growing and not needing quite as many feeds as she is now on more nutritional solids and certainly finding her little diva feet. She is already becoming very sociable and loves the company of other donkeys. It is hard to believe that her mother rejected her and from day one has been an independent little soul. We love her and all her cheekiness and know she is going to be a key part in the future of AAR.
All the proceeds of our activities go towards the upkeep of our animals.
Donkeys and Ponies – never a month goes by without a call out to the equine vet. This all takes a huge amount of money.
Dogs – male dogs coming into our care are castrated and all dogs are wormed, checked for ticks, vaccinated, passported and made to look beautiful.
Paco and Rupert are still waiting for their forever homes. I don’t know why they haven’t been snapped up. Both are very friendly, good with other dogs and on the lead and weigh around 12-15 kilos. Being a little older, no problems with having to house train! All vaccinations and passports are up to date for travelling. Look at our FB page to see them all set to go!
I will be in my usual spot for donations Mondays 11.30am-1.30pm on Camposol B Car Park, Camposol B.
