VWSA rallies to SPCA’s assistance

SPCA

Over 80 keen Volkswagen Group South Africa (VWSA) motorcyclists, including their friends and families, rallied together at the weekend in aid of furry four-legged animals being cared for by the Uitenhage SPCA.

The bikers gathered at the company’s AutoPavilion on Saturday [August 24] for the SPCA’s Animal Run – an initiative to raise funds and collect pet food for the SPCA Uitenhage kennels.

After seeing the Animal Run advertised, three VWSA employees approached the SPCA to offer assistance. They also encouraged fellow VWSA employees and company suppliers to support the cause.

James Rishworth, Angela Sandells and Craig Kennedy together with the VW Community Trust asked VWSA employees for donations of cash, pet food and blankets. They also rallied other VWSA bikers and their families to join in the procession from the AutoPavilion to the Uitenhage SPCA at Kruisriver, where the generous donations were handed over.

“We were overwhelmed with the support from our colleagues. We managed to raise a total of R3 600 and over 280kg of pet food,” said James Rishworth of VWSA Final Assembly.

Christelle Erasmus (vice-chairperson of Uitenhage SPCA management board) was ecstatic at the response to the call for donations.

“Huge thanks must go to VWSA’s employees for their support of this initiative – it was truly awesome.  I was amazed at the number of motorbikes that arrived in support and the donations we received. You guys ‘Ama’rock’,” she said.
