Asociacion Eco Vida. Helping the less fortunate in society for the past 5 years

Horse centre backs supporter


A ROJALES horse rescue charity is helping a valued supporter over the jumps with the town hall after being promised further cash donations.

The Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre is battling a critical cash flow crisis after being hit with vets bills and gratefully received 500€ from Asociacion Ecovida.

And now the equine charity is backing the association’s plans for a network of clothing collection bins through the area. If given a green light, Ecovida has “vowed” to continue backing the centre and other charities.

The donation came at a critical time for the Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre it needs 4,600€ to pay bills for two horses that fell ill last month and needed to be hospitalised. Sadly, both mares died.
"We are so grateful to receive this donation because we are really struggling right now," said rescue centre co-founder Sue Weeding. “We will use the 500€ to start paying off the large debt we owe Alicante horse hospital.”

The centre manages to find the 4,000€ needed each week to care for 96 horses, ponies and donkeys rescued from across Alicante, through its network of charity shops and from donations.

However, any unexpected bill can put the centre under extreme financial pressure, so the team is always "delighted" to receive a donation.

"It would be marvellous if we get the Asociacion Ecovida bins in our area because it will help us and other charities in the future," said Sue.

"We consider ourselves lucky to be based in Rojales, where we have the support of such a wonderful council and group of councillors – some of which we have known for years now and who have shown us nothing but help and support. We hope they favourably consider the Asociacion Ecovida proposal."
