As you may know, Watershed Animal Rescue is one of the charity beneficiaries for the 2015 Cape Cycle Tour. So far we have raised R12 000 but we are aiming at doing at least R36 000 so that we can continue our sterilisation projects and feeding programmes. We have a loooooooong way to go to reach our target – can YOU perhaps help us achieve our goal by sponsoring our team of 12 riders?
Your donation of R109 can not only sponsor 1 rider for the full 109km of the race, it can also cover one third of the cost of the sterilisation of a township animal!
AND every donation of R109 will go into a lucky draw for a two night stay for 2 people at the beautiful Zomerlust Gastehuis in Paarl!
PLEASE help us by donating to the following account:
Acc: 07 228 570 2
Swift Code: SBZAZAJJ
Reference: Your name + Cycle Tour
Please send a proof of payment as well as your contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can enter you into the draw.
All donations are tax deductible so please request a tax certificate for this purpose.

DEAR 100 CLUBBERS,
A VERY HAPPY 2015 TO ALL MY 100 CLUBBERS AND SUPPORTERS. YOU HAVE ALL SUPPORTED SO WONDERFULLY IN 2014 AND I AM SO GRATEFUL TO THE AMAZING AND GENEROUS DONATIONS THAT HAVE COME IN THIS YEAR FOR ME TO CONTINUE THE WORK THAT WATERSHED DOES.
I DO STRUGGLE TO GET THIS NEWSLETTER OUT EVERY MONTH AS YOU KNOW (LAST ONE WAS SEPT 2014!) BUT I DO ALL THIS ALONE, SO I AM ALWAYS BEHIND ON MY ADMIN.
WE HAVE ACHIEVED ONCE AGAIN SO MUCH SINCE NOVEMBER 2014 AND I HAVE CALCULATED THE FIGURES FROM NOVEMBER 2014 UNTIL 3RD FEBRUARY 2015 AND I AM VERY PROUD TO SHOW YOU THE FIGURES ACHIEVED THROUGH YOUR SUPPORT AND DEDICATION AND LOYALTY TO WATERSHED. AS YOU ALL KNOW IT’S A CONTINUAL STRUGGLE AND THE ROAD NEVER SEEMS TO SHOW ANY LIGHT, BUT EACH DAY ONE ANIMAL HAS BEEN SAVED IN SOUTH AFRICA THROUGH THE DEDICATION OF MANY PASSIONATE AND HARDWORKING VOLUNTEERS TO ALL ORGANISATIONS. I SALUTE EVERYONE OF THEM.
THROUGH OUR SPONSORED FLIGHTS WITH BIDAIR, WATERSHED HAS BEEN ABLE TO FLY WITHIN 2014, OVER 300 ANIMALS TO SAFETY. FROM THE INCEPTION OF OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH BIDAIR, 4 YEARS AGO, WE HAVE FLOWN JUST OVER 1500! THIS IN ITSELF IS AN ACHIEVEMENT AS 50 % OF THESE ANIMALS WERE ON DEATHROW LISTINGS OR ABOUT TO BE EUTHENASED. THEY ARE NOW ALL LIVING HAPPILY IN HOMES OR AT PRO-LIFE ORGANISATIONS AND SPECIFIC BREED ORGANISATIONS.
MY TOWNSHIP WORK HAS BEEN VERY SUCCESSFUL AND WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO MEDICATE, STERILISE AND VACCINATE JUST OVER 200 ANIMALS SINCE NOVEMBER LAST YEAR, 97 OF THESE BEING ON THE WEST COAST, LAINGVILLE AND THE REST IN STELLENBOSCH, PAARL AND SURROUNDS. WE ARE STILL VERY BUSY STERILISING IN PAARL AND HAVE ALSO COMMITTED TO A FEW FARMS IN AND AROUND STELLENBOSCH. EVERY SPAY COSTS MONEY AND WE STRUGGLE EACH DAY TO GET IN THE FUNDS AND HELP. THE MORE SUPPORT WE CAN GET, THE MORE WE CAN DO.
We have a very concerning matter at hand though. As you know, Watershed is a national fund that provides funds to all in need. We also took a huge knock when we saved and retrieved the dogs at the borders that were being sent illegally to Angola for the most horrific life. (WE SPENT OVER R400 000 JUST ON GETTING THESE 30 ANIMALS BACK TO SAFETY AND STILL HAVE A FEW IN KENNELLING AND REHABILTATION) Our funds are extremely low and are desperate to get the 100 Club to reach its target as this will help us considerably to get out of the red.
Please help us reach our target so that we can carry on helping those that are so desperate for our help. OR IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A DONATION TO THE FUND PLEASE HELP US.
OUR BANKING DETAILS ARE WATERSHED ANIMAL RESCUE AND REHABILITATION FUND. STANDARD BANK. ACC: 072285702
BRANCH CODE: 051001. PLEASE REFERENCE: YOUR NAME AND 100 CLUB THANK YOU.
