P.A.L.S. is well-known for the weekly Carboot Sale at Lanzarote a Caballo on Sundays, from 9am to 2pm. They also occasionally hold additional and special charity days, like the McMillan Coffee Mornings or Christmas Market. You can find those events on our “What’s on” section.
There is another way P.A.L.S. is raising funds for specific causes: their online auctions. Only bids on their official page: PALS Animal and Cultural Charity are valid. The auctioned items are quality second hand or brand new items and they are listed on a post with a photo, a brief description and a starting bid. The funds raised at by the P.A.L.S. auction are donated to a well deserving charity in the island.
This month of November, 2022 the chosen charity is La Casa de las Estrellas which is an independent animal sanctuary located in the middle of the volcanic desert in the north of Lanzarote run by Liala Miliardi with the help of many volunteers and supporters. Liala’s project in started in 2020 and she has been devoting all her time and resources to the well-being of her rescues ever since. La Casa de las Estrellas doesn’t have any governmental support so it relies on donations and the funds raised on their own Facebook online charity shop, events and the sales at markets like P.A.L.S. Carboot where they have a stall, too.
The first auction has been running since Tuesday 1st and it will continue until Tuesday the 7th of November, 2022 finishing at 6pm.
