AAR Appeal for Case Workers.

We need some special people to come on board and help us. Please don’t sit back thinking of all the things you can’t do.   If you are able to be online for a couple of hours plus, most days, we need you. It doesn’t matter where you live as long as you are online.  Full training and support will be given. We offer everything except wages!   Money doesn’t buy happiness, but the feeling you will have when your dogs find homes is worth more than anything. Come and join us and make a difference!

Not one but two opportunities to purchase Christmas Cards and support Cudeca Cancer Care, Spain.   Have you purchased your Christmas cards yet?       On Friday, 17th November at the  Afternoon Tea in Bar Lorena, Competa from 2pm – 5pm., there will be a dedicated stall selling all cards including Christmas with 100% donated to Cudeca.   If you can’t make 17th, then pop along to Todo Papel, Competa as  once  again, they are generously donating 10% of all their Christmas Card sales to Cudeca.    Thank you for your support.    Cindy Jones,  Cudeca Volunteer, Competa


Complaint – Lack of Important Info I must be turning into a grumpy old woman!!   I have looked at the various advertisements today and (unless I’m completely missing something) none of the following included their location:
Nancy, teaching Spanish;  Complete house sale;  6 rush sheet chairs;  artificial beams;  large display cabinet and mirror;  water distiller;  gel nails;  various clothes.
My first thought, when I see something interesting, is to find out where it is.   When there’s no  information I immediately lose interest.   I’m sure other people must be the same.   (Or perhaps it is just me!)
Rant over.   Sue, Archez
