March 2020 SPCA Annual Appeal – Kiwi Newfoundlands Collecting – 7am Downtown, Auckland. The Kiwi Newfoundlands are doing the SPCA Annual Appeal downtown again this year and could really use the help with collecting. They will be covering the usual areas of downtown, Queen Street, Albert Street, Takutai square, Britomart and the Ferry building and along the waterfront. They need as many helping hands and paws as possible. This will be their 12th year collecting and once before they hit the $10,000 mark in just 4 hours of collecting and other years pretty close to it. A remarkable achievement for a small group of people in such a short space of time. Please can you let Carol know directly if you can make it, even if only for a short space of time, on that Friday morning and she can then work out where to place people and their dogs.
