When Riebeek College Girls’ High School heard the devastating news of the fire at the Uitenhage SPCA, they sprang into action to help.

“The girls brought donations to school and the response was incredible” said Marilyn Woods, Principal of Riebeek College Girls’High School.

Mrs Skeates, teacher in charge of the SPCA club at Riebeek, and Carla Ferreira, Head of the SPCA club, said that they were delighted to be going on this outing with such a lot of items to hand over.

Annually, the club hands over a cheque to the Uitenhage SPCA at the end of the year with funds raised through cake sales, civvies days, colouring-in competitions and other innovative fundraising projects.

Chiara Rossi, a member of the SPCA Club said, “We went to the SPCA to deliver food to feed all the homeless animals. It was our duty as Riebeek girls to march in and save the day for our furry friends.

“With no doubt everyone left with a little piece of them wishing they could take all the animals home with them.”

Carla Ferreira commented on the trip saying, “It was also a great honour to help the SPCA with their food collection.

“A worthy cause we are grateful to support”
