Cape Town – The Western Cape Cerebral Palsy Association is to bid farewell to its collection doll.
For 66 years, "Suzy" was a familiar feature at shopping centres across the province. She wore a leg brace and held a teddy bear and a red collection box.
As part of the organisation’s cerebral palsy awareness campaign, during Cerebral Palsy Week from August 26 - 30, it will introduce a new logo, branding and online fundraising platform.
At its annual general meeting last year the organisation’s treasurer, Osman Shaboodien, reported that Suzy, which was once one of its biggest money makers, was becoming “extinct”.
The organisation said the doll would live on but on a digital platform.
