Gunter’s 40 years retail experience in the formal sector before joining us in February 2007 stand him in very good stead in his position with the uMngeni SPCA. When Gunter joined us we had one charity shop. He has expanded and developed this income earning sector of our SPCA to five retail stores. He now applies his knowledge and expertise to bringing in an ever growing return from these outlets.
Anne 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.
