THE SPCA, nationally is facing a funding crisis after being cut off by national Lottery this year, and South Coast locals have been using fun and dance to try and help.

The monkey dance initiative, which has seen the Wayne’s Auctions family shaking it up for charity for five weeks is running for its final week this week.

The initiative which has raised more than R3 000 was started by the Ramsgate Crime Prevention Forum.

Chairperson of the CPF Carla Steenkamp said she approached Wayne and Michelle Wridgeway of Wayne’s Auctions in Margate for assistance in raising funds for the SPCA and the pair gladly donated their business for six weeks.

“We as the Ramsgate CPF get numerous calls for help with animals running around and were saddend to hear that the SPCA is struggling at the moment due to being cut off from Lotto funding,” said Steenkamp.

Operations manager for the SPCA Lower South Coast Lauren Ferreira said the initiative was a big surprise.

“We are very grateful to Wayne’s Auctions and the community at large for the support.

“We were very pleased to find out about this initiative and it was also great fun to watch,” said Ferreira.

The final auction day will be on Saturday at 9am at Wayne’s Auctions in Margate.
