RSPCA turns Martin Place into Cupcake Place!
On Tuesday 10 August, the RSPCA NSW Cupcake Day Team, Gyton Grantley (star of Underbelly), Luke Jacobz (from Home and Away) and players from the NRL Canterbury Bulldogs team will turn Martin Place into ‘Cupcake Place’, selling cupcakes for a cause and spreading awareness of Cupcake Day for the RSPCA.
From 11am to 2pm, two Cupcake Day stalls will be set up at the amphitheatre, Martin Place. RSPCA Staff and Volunteers, some cute RSPCA Shelter dogs and the animal-loving celebs will exchange delicious Sparkle Cupcakery delights made with cage-free eggs for a gold coin donation to the RSPCA. All monies raised goes directly to RSPCA NSW in their fight against animal cruelty. The RSPCA Cupcake Day Team will also be selling some fantastic RSPCA and Cupcake Day merchandise on the day. To order online now, please visit onlineshop.rspcansw.org.au
Last year $1.1 million was raised across Australia and this year the RSPCA is hoping to raise $2.5 million but they need your help. “Every year the RSPCA cares for over 155,000 animals and as we receive less than 2% government funding, we rely on the generosity of the community and their participation in these fundraising events to continue,” said RSPCA NSW CEO Steve Coleman. “I’m really happy to support the RSPCA and what better way than through the power of cupcakes!” – Gyton Grantley.
Cupcake Day for the RSPCA is on Monday 16 August. Registered RSPCA Cupcake Cooks across Australia will descend on their schools, workplaces and social groups with batches of scrumptious homemade cupcakes to be exchanged for donations to the RSPCA.
