2017-08-02 06:01

NCT Forestry Co-Operative Limited donated R25 000 to the PMB SPCA as part of their Mandela Day initiative.

The cheque was presented by the director’s wives and will go towards renovating the cattery.

Maureen Vida from SPCA said they are very grateful to the NCT and the money will assist tremendously.

“We are totally overwhelmed. We did not expect this amount. It will be put to good use to upgrade the lives of the cats.

“Our cats live in small cages, now we will be able to increase the size and the cats will have playgrounds.”

She said as a NPO they have many financial challenges as they get loads of cats and dogs all the time.

“At the moment we have 70 cats and want keep them happy in the best conditions and be able to accommodate as many as we can in the future.

“We hope other co-operatives will also assist us so we can continue to keep our animals and workers happy.”

She said they had no idea how much money NCT was going to donate.

“I was just talking to someone a month ago telling her about the our work and struggles. I didn’t know she was from a big company. She said she is going to speak to the company she is involved with to see what they can do.

“They came to us and said they will see how they can help us. We were shocked when we saw the amount they were donating, but we are very grateful.”
