Cupcake Day - eat a cupcake and do your bit

Written by Media Manager.

The Nelson SPCA Cupcake Day is now just a week away. The biggest and easiest thing you can do to help the SPCA out is to just buy some cupcakes!

MMMMMmmmmm. Nomnomnom. Licoricey cupcakes.
The cupcakes will be available from Cupcake 3 stalls in Nelson and Richmond, and from stalls at New World and Countdown in Nelson. They have got some commercial sponsorship from Brumbies on Hardy Street, who have come up with some excellent cupcakes to get you all thinking!

Our inagural 2012 EcoFund Winners: The Nelson SPCA

Written by Media Manager.

After a great couple of weeks of sharing the Bowater's Eco Fund message a clear winner has emerged in the battle for the first round of $1000 funding.

The Nelson SPCA did a wonderful job of motivating their social network to log onto our Bowater Motor Group Facebook page to share and like the SPCA poster.

This afternoon we had the pleasure of presenting the Nelson SPCA with a cheque for $1000 courtesy of the Bowater's Eco Fund for 2012 - a fund made entirely possible by the collection of faulty, used or waste vehicle batteries for recycling that would otherwise end up in the tip causing untold environmental damage for generations to come.

The first round of the Bowater's Eco Fund has been very rewarding with a fantastic response from the Facebook community. It shows that the community spirit is certainly alive and well, even on Facebook, and that if donation based charities are proactive with local business, good things can happen! It has been our pleasure to share the Eco Fund money out, but this is far from a one off event - we are already planning the second round of funding!

Last year the SPCA raised over $230,000 for SPCA’s across the nation. In Nelson alone the cupcake bakers managed to raise over $4,000 and this year they are hoping to reach that goal and more!
