Hello Friends and people wanting to help out our 2 chosen charities.This April coming, 10 of us (mostly women and children!) will walk gently with our ponies and horses along the GR7 trail that passes through Spain’s natural Parks from the South up to the Pyrenees, We will be raising money for RROR (Refugee Rights on the Road, helping Syrian refugees as they arrive in Greece) and Alpujarra Kids Space (A special supportive place in nature where kids can play and be free and creative) here in Alpujarras.
We will see how far we get in the following months along the GR7! The destination may be the Pyrenees, but for us we will not be in a rush! we will be traveling slowly through some of Spain’s most beautiful areas and enjoying being connected with our kids and horses, nature and our friends. while most importantly raising as much money as we can through your donations for the two charities.
We will upload photos of our journey every few days and also mark where we are on a map, so you can follow our journey, and be a part of it with us in spirit if not in person.
Any donations you can give are very much appreciated, (small ones also very much appreciated!) From now until Mid April any donations we get will be sent : 50% to RROR and 50% to Bene Kids Space. When we start the Trek in April It will be 40% to RROR, 30% to Alpujarra Kids Space and 30% to the caravan to support the trekkers and horses for food. If there is excess money in what we need to feed us and our animals then that will be given to the two charities. Please contact us if you have any questions, thank you for taking time to read this 🙂
