Donations to SAPRA

Donations make SAPRA more effective and we can do more for our community. If you would like to donate money to SAPRA, you can use the ZAPPER app shown below.  You would need to have the app on your cell phone to do that - if not, please download it first.  Then use the app to capture the QR code (i.e. this picture below) to make an easy donation.  Thanks for your support.

If possible, please don't use ZAPPER to pay subscriptions.

We have revised our website images.

Mike Hobbs is a member of SAPRA and a resident of Saxonwold.  He is an artist and has kindly agreed to allow us to use some of his art on our website for a limited time.  Each page will show a different art piece in the banner.  Please enjoy his art exhibition but respect his copyright.  We will keep it up for a period of approximately three months.  If you would like to know more about the artist, you can click here.

Please let us have any comments you may have about the art exhibition.
