A gutsy 60-year-old lady threw caution to the wind as she raised more nearly 600 euros for the Rojales-based Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre after jumping from a plane in the UK. Elaine Sissons, who lives in Britain but has a Costa Blanca holiday home, is a volunteer at the centre’s La Zenia charity shop. Elaine said a parachute jump had long been on her “bucket list” and she decided to finally bite the bullet to celebrate her 60th birthday!
Rescue centre co-founder Sue Weeding thanked Elaine for dedicating her jump to helping abused and neglected horses in Spain, raising 571 euros. “We just think it’s lovely that British residents who have holiday homes here in Spain are willing to support us, both by volunteering at our shops and by fundraising,” Sue said.
