Fundrais­ing ef­fort is a sweet suc­cess

Pilbara News - - News - Court­ney Fowler

A team from MMA Off­shore in Dampier has joined the launch of RSPCA WA’s sweet­est fundrais­ing event of the year, in which lo­cal an­i­mal lovers fight cru­elty with cup­cakes.

On Mon­day, the MMA Off­shore lo­gis­tics ad­min­is­tra­tion team baked, iced and sold dozens of cakes to raise funds for the thou­sands of sick, in­jured and ne­glected an­i­mals helped by the or­gan­i­sa­tion each year.

MMA Off­shore spokes­woman Amy Smythe said RSPCA Cup­cake Day was a good op­por­tu­nity for em­ploy­ees to get to know each other while sup­port­ing a wor­thy cause.

“Ev­ery year, MMA Off­shore sup­ports a fundraiser and this year our staff has been very gen­er­ous get­ting be­hind the RSPCA Cup­cake Day,” she said.

“Ev­ery­one in our team loves an­i­mals and cup­cakes, so it seemed a per­fect fit for us.”

RSPCA WA chief ex­ec­u­tive David van Oo­ran said Cup­cake Day was a fun way for an­i­mal lovers who wanted to help make a dif­fer­ence to raise much-needed funds for RSPCA WA’s work.

“Even though an­i­mal cru­elty is some­thing peo­ple of­ten don’t want to think about, the fact is that ev­ery dol­lar counts when it comes to our res­cue work and so we’d re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate peo­ple sup­port­ing us by par­tic­i­pat­ing in this im­por­tant fundraiser,” he said.

“We think there’s no bet­ter way to help RSPCA WA than by bak­ing, ic­ing, selling and eat­ing cup­cakes dur­ing Au­gust, and the fact that it can be com­bined with a morn­ing tea for friends and work col­leagues is just the ic­ing on the cake.”

Funds raised through Cup­cake Day will di­rectly help all crea­tures great and small across WA.

RSPCA WA needs to raise 94 per cent of its op­er­at­ing ex­penses, as only 6 per cent is cov­ered by a grant from the State Gov­ern­ment.
