Bikers from across the Metro will on Saturday participate in the Uitenhage SPCA’s largest fund raiser for the year, namely the annual Animal Run.

“We started our Animal Run fund raiser in 2013 and every year it has got better. It is well supported by the biking community and this year we hope that the public will support as well,” said Deirdre Swift from the Uitenhage andamp; District SPCA managing board.

In the past it has been held at the SPCA, but this year there will be a change of scenery as it will be at the Iron Legion Club House in Sellick Street. There will be a bike procession leaving from the Penford Engen Convenience Centre in Graaff Reinet Road at 09:00. All participating bikers are to meet at the parking area at 08:30. They will travel down Church Street, turn left into Caledon Street, then right into Market Street and all the way down to Sellick Street. So for anyone interested in bikes, there will be plenty to look at!

There is an entrance fee of R30, which if you pay, will entitle you to a metal SPCA Animal Run badge, entry into the lucky draws as well as entry into the games where you can win prizes.

“There are games for the public and then also for the bikers - using their bikes in the games - so it should be entertaining,” said Swift.

)Entry fee is not compulsory. There will be stalls, good food, live music and bar facilities. The festivities start at 08:30
