Big success on April 1st, Alpurraja Raid!

On April 1st 2017 at 9:00 a.m., our amazing team from Equus Alpurraja started  the fourth annual ‘Alpujarra Raid’ horseback event which raised €1,187 for Acompalia!

Great news!

Our fantastic fundraising day on April 1st, has raised €1,187 for Acompalia. This amount is set to raise when the painting by Colin Smith is sold by auction, more news on that later.

The “Dream Team” of hard working volunteers make this day so special and unique and we could not do it without them.

Sponsors, donations, cake makers all played a huge part.

The horses, riders, bikers and walkers all enjoyed our special countryside here on the Contraviesa, and the weather was kind to us. This year we had new riders from far afield, Alicante, Murcia, Salobrena, and hope they will visit the area again.

Heartfelt thanks to everyone.
