IN order to raise funds, the SPCA will run a gift wrapping station at Hayfields Mall where the public can have their festive gifts wrapped in exchange for a donation.The station will offer their services during December and the SPCA is looking for volunteers to man the station for four-hour long shifts. Sandy Homan of the SPCA said that without the help of the public and fundraising initiatives, the SPCA is nothing. “Shifts for the gift wrapping station from December 1 to December 12 run from 9 am to 1 pm. From December 13 to December 24 they will run from 8.30 am to 1.30 pm,” said Homan, who added that volunteers are shown how to wrap and will also be told what is expected from them at the station.She emphasised that anyone is welcome to volunteer and also encouraged individuals seeking to do their community service to participate in the SPCA gift wrapping initiative.The SPCA will also host a Christmas Night Market to raise necessary funds on Saturday, December 8 at the Pietermaritzburg SPCA from 4 pm.Speaking on the market, Homan said: “The event promises food, fun, live music, and more. Outside stall holders are welcome.”For more information on the gift wrapping initiative and the Christmas Night Market contact the SPCA at 083 641 6765 or 076 632 6162.
