November 2017 - Rawhiders presenting wheelchairs to Cancer Support Group MABS during their monthly breakfast meeting at the Peppermill Restaurant in Benidorm. Many thanks to all our fund raising members, and thanks also to MABS for their wonderful support to all in times of need.

July 2017 - Well, we have done it - our fund raising efforts have been successful in respect of the Torrevieja Alzheimer's Association, and the new external signage at the Day Centre has now been paid for and erected. We visited Sat 22nd July 2017 to inaugurate the sign, see photos.... a great big thank you to all our wonderful Rawhider members for your generosity and support in order to make this happen for these wonderful people.

The club has enjoyed a very successful 2016 year.

The year end also saw the Clubs 6th Xmas function (moved to evening from lunchtime) and charity auction, in December, attended by 80 people, some of who had flown in from overseas for the occasion.The auction raised 554 Euros for our designated Alzheimer's Charity. The club also participated in the annual Santa Toy Run in December, in Alicante.

This year’s events also included monthly ride/outs to various bike shows, museums, and other places of interest, as well as very popular monthly breakfast meetings. We also made visits to the Torrevieja Alzheimer’s Association, whom we support, to hand over funds raised during the year.

Of course, none of this would have been possible in the first place, without the camaraderie, input and attendance of our wonderful club members, so thanks to all in this respect.

Lots of latent talent exists within the club, especially the musical kind, and to that end, some members have got a band together called Just Breathing, or also known as the Rawhiders Band, and made their debut in July 2016

Hi all,

Just to let you know that Matilde has decided to retire. Its quite understandable as you can see from the article. However, the good work of the AFA goes on, and we will continue to support them.

Hi all, the Alzheimers collection tin collected from Alfies Place in mid September raised 10 Euros. Not a lot you might think, previous tin was about 20 Euros, but every little helps.

Club member Steve Brookers mum in law, has kindly donated 140 Euros that she raised for us at her recent 80th birthday party, and has specified that it was raised for the Alzheimers society.

A wonderful gesture..... thank you!!!
We are proud to announce that we have now reached 100 club members, so hopefully we are doing something right.

Patches being presented to our 100th member Patrik Kinander
