On Saturday September 14, Chantel Erfort, editor of Cape Community Newspapers, which publishes this paper and its 14 sister papers, ran the Cape Town Marathon 12km Peace Trail Run in aid of the Cape of Good Hope SPCA. Through her fundraising campaign, she raised R5 000 for the organisation. #TeamSPCA also had members running the 10km Peace Run on Sunday September 15. “I’m grateful to all our readers, contacts and friends who contributed to my campaign,” said Chantel. “Through making a donation, you’ve helped give an animal in need a new ‘leash’ on life.” For more information, or to make a donation to the SPCA, call 021 700 4140.
