SPCA cupcakes go down a treat
EVERY week Klara LuxfordRulisek gets a present from her cat— awiggly worm.
It was the inspiration for the cupcakes she decorated last week in support of SPCA Cupcake Day. Cupcake is an annual SPCA fundraiser. Her cupcakes were birdswith worms in their beaks.
The activities team at Radius Matua entertained their residents last week by decorating cupcakes which were made by kitchen staff.
Residents got to vote for their favourite decorator and buy cupcakes for a gold coin donation. Proceedswent to the SPCA’s appeal. Araffle was also held.
Animal-inspired cupcakes of every descriptionwere cleverly produced including owls, frogs, birds, cows, chickens and elephants.
Shelters, organisations, schools, businesses and individuals throughout the country organise their own cupcake selling events to help the SPCA. More than $96,000 has been raised nationally this year so far.
