Mike Webb, aka the Pink Fairy, is raising money for the SPCA in Qonce (formerly King William’s Town) by taking part in a virtual Buffs Marathon on Sunday.
Traditionally, the Buffs Marathon is run on the last Sunday of February or the first Sunday in March but the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has forced it to be cancelled.
On Sunday, Webb will start running from Macleantown all the way to Buffs Club in East London, a distance of roughly 42km.
As part of the project, he has asked BCM residents to help out by donating money or pet food to the SPCA.
Pet food can be dropped off at Buffalo Toyota, while cash donations can be made to the following account:

There are also prizes up for grabs, such as Bananaskinz socks, bottles of wine and goodies from Earth Forest.
The highest donation will receive a handcrafted pen donated by Wild Olive Creations, while the 17th person to donate will receive a “love in a basket” donated by Nachwelt Projects.
