What started as a simple fun challenge within the Manica group turned into a heartwarming gesture. Woker Freight Services challenged staff members in the group to cycle from Walvis Bay to Swakopmund (covering about 36km). Most of the participating staff do not cycle regularly or cycle at all, but managed to complete the challenge – despite aching knees and sore bums. The cycle challenge raised some N$1000. With the recent rain in Walvis Bay and the SPCA’s previous appeal for old linen, blankets and pillows; the cycling funds were spent on buying some snugly blankets.
Lorraine Maritz (SPCA Committee) couldn’t thank Manica enough and said it was a blessing in the rainy weather. “With the rain the dogs go in and out of the kennels and quickly trample their blankets wet.Washing and trying to get the blankets dry in this rain is almost impossible. So this donation is a heaven sent, thank you so much!”
Manica also matched the funds raised and donated a further N$1000 towards the centre’s veterinary bill. The other two stars in the SPCA photo were promptly named in Manica’s honour, as “Piper” and “Tossie” respectively.
