TWO Grade 11 learners from Pearson High School, Jenna Parry and Carmen Doyle, recently raised more than R7 000 for the Animal Anti-Cruelty League (AACL) as part of an animal awareness event called Until Every Cage is Empty, Until All Cruelty Ends.

Various animal rescue organisations had volunteers, like Parry and Doyle, spend 12 hours in a cage to raise funds for their various causes.

The organisations’ followers were asked to sponsor them for every hour the volunteers spent in the cages, which were erected at the Kemsley Park Sport Grounds.

The event was organised by animal worker, Megan Kelly, who joined the volunteers for the full 12 hours in a cage as well.

Some of the organisations that participated in the event were the AACL, Cat Care, Domestic Animal Abuse and PEAR.

Parry recently started up the ECOS-PAWS group at Pearson High School and this was their first fundraising awareness programme.

She and Doyle raised R7 040 during their 12-hour shift. The Animal Anti-Cruelty League was the recipient of R11 788 in total.
