Psycho Stomper is a Cape Town trance party where all the proceeds go to the Wellington SPCA, a local animal shelter. Shouniez & Shaheen Van Der Schyff got the idea of initiating a “Hoop-a-thon” at the event to raise even more funds. For their support of the SPCA in Wellington, they decided that people would be hooping it up for three hours – providing they could raise at least R1000 for the cause. Not only were they able to raise the cash, they raised the hoop factor as well. Wayne Barham from Arise and Hoop heard about it and got in on the effort and soon the entire Arise and Hoop crew was rolling on board. From there, a rapid domino effect started to happen and the response was phenomenal raising the target R1000 within a mere week and a half. And the South African generosity for our furry friends didn’t end there either. By the weekend of the party everyone had managed to raise a total of R3400 for the Wellington SPCA and a hooping good time was had by all. Did we mention that Arise and Hoop dressed up as animals in support too? Check out all the photos here.
