Winklespruit home scholars make tail-wagging donation to SPCA

A group of home-schooled children took it upon themselves to heed Amanzimtoti SPCA’s call for dog food donations.

Dolla du Toit, who runs the Winkle Home Academy, said she saw a Facebook post from the SPCA calling for donations, as its stocks were running low. She mentioned it to her 34 pupils and Aiden Bentley was one of the main instigators who decided to take up the challenge. He and his schoolmates went door-to-door to houses and businesses from their school to Warner Beach Senior Prep, badgering everyone to buy raffle tickets.

“We sold over 300 tickets,” said Dolla. “The first prize of a food platter was sponsored by Vera du Plessis, I sponsored the second of a R200 Clicks voucher, and the third of R100 cash was donated by Marinda van Niekerk.” Winners of the raffle: First John Padwinto, second Eunice Maotho and third Pravesh.

With the money raised, they approached the Fins and Tails pet shop in the Kingsburgh Centre, where the owner not only donated a 40kg bag of dog food but also sold them the rest at cost price. Altogether they managed to raise enough money to purchase nine 40kg and two 25kg bags of dog food.

“This is amazing,” said SPCA volunteer, Michelle Hannan. “It is absolutely incredible that such a small school can donate so much dog food and for them to take up the initiative is simply stunning. We are so happy when the community gets involved to help the SPCA.”
