Docksider netball team takes a shot at helping SPCA
Big-hearted athletes who pitched in for the Bermuda SPCA were joined at their cheque presentation by a young dog in need of a home.
Women of the Docksider Netball Team gathered outside the Hamilton pub to meet Spice, a four-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier.
The team also handed over $2,575 raised for the SPCA from their fundraiser race night on February 18 to charity representative Rhondasha Wilkinson.
Reed Young, owner of the Front Street bar, said: “We are happy to support charitable causes and a wonderful gesture from the Dockies Netball team – and I might add very successful.”
The charity supporting animals in need said it was “thrilled”.
A spokeswoman added: “It is so heart-warming that local businesses are still choosing to support us during a time which has been so tough for them as well as us.
“The simple fact is that without the kind generosity the community has shown us, we would not be able to continue to assist as many of Bermuda’s neglected, abandoned and surrendered animals as we do.”
Spice, a young dog in need of a home, “loves her humans, she loves to be out and about meeting new people”.
