Bikers go full throttle for fundraiser

The annual SPCA Biker’s Breakfast took place at the Malcom Andrew Centre at the Dale College rugby fields in King William’s Town on Sunday.

The breakfast, now in its 12th year, attracted over 200 bikers and community members. It was held in conjunction with the town’s Rotary Club to raise funds for the SPCA.

Former Rotary president Denver Agram said the breakfast was started by Peter Slater in 2006.

“This initiative is to help with the SPCA’s finances. All the money raised here will go to them,” Agram said.

The funds raised from the event reached R20 000. SPCA chairperson Felicity Gooer said that every little donation counted.

“Raising money is tough and we don’t receive any kind of government subsidy or grant. All these funds go towards taking care of the animals.”

Bikers came from as afar afield as Jeffreys Bay, with over 14 clubs represented including East London club The Exes. SPCA committee member Anette Rademeyer said they would host a potjie fun day on October 28 at the Pirates Club

“The community is encouraged to take part and put up a stall at a nominal fee of R60. You can sell anything you have in your garages and the proceeds can go straight into your pockets,” Rademeyer said.
