Suzy has been one of the most active, on-the-ground fundraisers for the Western Cape Cerebral Palsy Association (WCCPA) for 66 years. You will remember her in your local shopping malls, wearing her blue dress and holding her red collection box and teddy bear. The doll statue has been instrumental in the raising of more than R200 000 for the Association annually – a reliable source of donations from the public.

Part of Suzy’s charm was her accessibility. She was readily available to receive money that people received as change from their transactions at till points and was appealing to adults and children alike. In her time of active duty for the WCCPA, Suzy became a precious part of the cerebral palsy community in the Western Cape. Sadly, retailers and shopping malls are no longer able to accommodate Suzy and alternate platforms need to be developed for the public to continue supporting the work of the WCCPA.

With this in mind, the WCCPA is giving Suzy the retirement she deserves and is excited to introduce a new, digitally-focused future where online fundraising and social media have become part of the fabric of how an organisation’s message reaches the public.

The WCCPA aims to shift its fundraising focus to an online platform where it is unrestrained by time or distance and will reach greater audiences that includes individuals, businesses and other institutions as well.
