The Karoo Animal Protection Society (Kaps) will hold a Chari-tea Garden Par-tea at 72 Starke Road, Bergvliet from 10:00 to 12:00 on Sunday 27 October.

Kaps volunteer Christine Calothi has opened up her garden for the event.

Attendants will enjoy a cup of tea and a piece of cake – at a donation of R50 – in a beautiful setting reminiscent of an English country garden.

Kaps provides a mobile service for animals in the deprived areas of the Little Karoo in rural South Africa. It takes free welfare services daily to a core catchment area approaching 5 000 km². Animals are dipped, dewormed, fed, taken for treatment, sterilised, rescued and rehomed.

Calothi, who is also a Rotarian, has been involved with the charity for the past six years.

She, together with a group of helpers, raise funds to send to Kaps. They hold a charity bonanza sale every month in Tokai.

Calothi says her love for rescued animals motivated her to get involved.

“The relief of suffering of animals is paramount in my life. People from poor communities do love their animals but they do not have the means to care for them properly. There is a lot of suffering going on in the Karoo,” she says.

A collection of donated second-hand goods will be on sale at the tea party.

All proceeds raised will go to Kaps.
