Young Victoria fundraiser helps her furry friends

Amaryllis Perry, 10, plans her third annual bake sale for BCSPCA this weekend

A Victoria youngster who loves animals is again putting her passion into an effort to help her furry friends.

Amaryllis Perry, 10, has already raised hundreds of dollars for the BCSPCA Victoria Branch – and she’s hoping to raise more this weekend.

“Amaryllis wanted to do something two years ago to help support the BCSPCA, so we decided to put together a bake sale. The first year it generated $600 in sales and donations and last year it raised over $1,200, all of which went to the SPCA,” said Tony Perry, Amaryllis’s dad.

With her third annual bake sale, Amaryllis hopes to raise more than $1,200 to help the area’s animals who are in need of care.

“We are always impressed by the ambition and drive of our youth donors,” said Marsha MacMurchy, BCSPCA community fundraiser.”

“It is children like Amaryllis, with her huge heart for animals, who will drive the future of our animals’ welfare and make such an impact on those currently in our care.”

The bake sale is Saturday (May 30), from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 1724 Kings Rd.
