FOUR HUNDREDS of classic, tuner and American cars helped collect half a ton of supplies for La Nucia Animal Shelter.

The car show, organized by Club Almafra Racing and Butterfly Drift Photography, was held in the parking lot of the Camilo Cano sports complex and included motorcycle exhibitions by Ruben Sevilla and Atila, known as’ the acrobat on four wheels ”.

All the money raised thanks to the registration fees paid by the participating vehicles from all over the Valencian Community, Murcia and Andalusia, was donated to the La Nucia refuge, the Protectora de Animales.

There were also donations of much-needed supplies of food, medicine and other animal items from participants and visitors.
