Cheer fund: Don’t miss out, help out!

Please help to raise much needed funds for our four-legged friends at the Boksburg SPCA, for the fast approaching festive season.

While friends, families and loved ones are celebrating, there are animals behind bars that we tend to forget about.

The Boksburg SPCA finds its kennels overwhelmed during the Christmas period and, thus, the Advertiser will again be assisting with the fund-raising drive.

The purpose of the Christmas Cheer Fund is to raise funds to cater for all the furry critters that need to be fed and to give some Christmas treats to all the unfortunate pets behind bars.

The community is encouraged to get involved by honouring past and present pets by pledging donations – no amount is too small – at the society’s premises, in Railway Street, Boksburg, or by depositing funds into the bank account: Boksburg SPCA, Absa Bank, Eastlands Branch 630442, account number 4046388139

Beneficiary reference: Christmas Cheer and your name/anonymous (it is very important that it be indicated that the payment is for the Christmas Cheer Fund).

Fax a copy of your proof of payment, including your optional short message, to the Boksburg SPCA on 011 916 5908, or email it to boksburgspcareception@gmail.com.

Also email the proof of payment, with your short message, to ischke@caxton.co.za, so that every sponsor (whether it be an individual, school, organisation or a business) can be recognised in the Advertiser.

The Cheer Fund will be running until the end of January.

For more information regarding the fund, contact the SPCA on 011 916 5906/7 or the Advertiser on 087 285 6458.
