Anne Smith – SPCA Plant Lady

Anne SmithAnne has been the driving force behind establishing our Gardeners’ Corner, firstly at Campbell Road and later at our Fundraising Centre in Main Street Howick.   She has been with us through thick and thin, planning, executing and running our highly successful plant nursery.   Anne not only sources plants from nurseries at very special prices, she also goes to Kloof SPCA to fetch loads of plants donated from their nursery and she also pots out slips, cuttings, divisions of huge matted plants and other material that is donated by gardeners.  Whatever else she does with her magic wand to produce the huge stock of fine plants, seedlings, shrubs and trees to sell at competitive prices I wouldn’t know but the measure of her success is in the band of loyal supporters who always look for their garden requirements at the SPCA Centre before they even think of going anywhere else.

Meet the team

Robin Farina and Cynthia Wright

Robin Farina and Cynthia WrightMeet the ladies from our Sewing Team! Robin has been an enthusiastic volunteer for 7 years and is one of three very capable and creative ladies who run the sewing department at our Main Street Centre. She also is very actively involved in the 1000 Paws Walk every year and has worked tirelessly as part of the Catering team as well. Cynthia has been an amazing addition to the Sewing team for the past 4 years. Her sewing skills continue to be of huge assistance to us – enabling us to sell more items in our retail shops. In the 2012 year, the ladies have done wonders with all the fabric and other items that are donated to us and they spend many hours sorting through the donations that are given to us. To date, they have made 800 items of cushions, curtains, dresses and other sewing items for our shops! Well done ladies!

Lots of people talk to animals.... Not very many listen, though.... That's the problem. ~Benjamin Hoff, The Tao of Pooh

We support ONLY the circuses that DO NOT use animals of any kind to entertain the crowds. The use of wild animals in Circus acts is inhumane
