A History of the SPCA Tails Up Club
The total proceeds of a society lottery, after the deduction of amounts for expenses and prizes, must be applied solely to the following: recognised charitable purposes
(extracted from National Lottery Board Law)
The idea to “win” while supporting a worthy initiative all started in June 2012.
First, a Compliance document had to be completed and submitted to the Lotto Board for approval and funding.
The SPCA Mobile Clinic Programme was the perfect programme always in need of funding.
Mobile clinics are a vital service and operate in impoverished areas within the Western Cape. The facts & Rand figures are all submitted in the Lotto Compliance document in order for the Cape of Good Hope SPCA to be a beneficiary for much needed funds.
With the “win” factor, the Cape of Good Hope SPCA hopes to encourage donors to give to animals in need of help and care, while also getting the chance to win something for themselves.
The Tails Up Expenses as follows are all submitted in the Compliance document:
– Mobile Clinics: Fuel, Oil & Vaccines & other medical supplies
– Office Costs
– Salary Costs
