IN a first ever for the SPCA Uitenhage & District - which serves the entire Nelson Mandela Metropole and beyond - they will operate a charity shop as part of their fundraising efforts.

“The SPCA Uitenhage & District is continuously financially challenged, and we are forced to become innovative and find ways to earn additional income,” said Deirdré Swift, chairperson of the SPCA Uitenhage & District.

“This shop actually is an extension of our Jumble Sale which operates twice monthly. But instead of having a fundraiser only eight hours a month, we now can for six days or 24 hours a week, try to boost our financial situation.”
