last updated 30/07/2019

23 July 2019 – The Coffee Club has once again teamed up with SPCA for Cupcake Day, which raises funds for animals in need

The Coffee Club will be raising funds for the SPCA Cupcake Day campaign from 29 July to 5 August

The Coffee Club is getting behind Cupcake Day to help raise money for SPCA, who care for abused and neglected animals. As the official sponsor of SPCA Cupcake Day, The Coffee Club will be selling cupcakes in all its cafés throughout New Zealand from Monday 29 July until Monday 5 August, with 100 percent of cupcake sales going to SPCA Cupcake Day.

In addition to The Coffee Club’s week-long event, the SPCA is recruiting Kiwi bakers and cake-lovers to dust off their aprons and bake for animals in need for its annual Cupcake Day fundraiser on 5 August. It’s a fun and interactive event and one of SPCA’s key fundraisers. The charity is encouraging keen bakers, workplaces, friends and schools to get stuck into the kitchen and whip up a cupcake storm.

For more information on SPCA Cupcake Day and ways to get involved as a baker head to After registering, you’ll receive plenty of ideas, recipes, inspiration and tips to make your event special. Remember to share photos of your mouth-watering creations on the SPCA’s Facebook page at @RoyalNZSPCA and on Instagram at @spcanz using the hashtag #SPCACupcakeDay and #BakeaDifference.

For those who aren’t bakers, you can support the cause by popping into one of The Coffee Club stores and buying a cupcake. Last year, sales of special cupcakes at The Coffee Club helped raise $30,000 for the charity.

‘Supporting SPCA Cupcake Day is a natural fit for us,’ says Andy Lucas, Director of The Coffee Club, which recently launched a new menu. ‘We’re big animal lovers, and we know there are a lot of people who feel the same way and may not have the time to bake themselves. However, they still want to be a part of SPCA Cupcake Day and do their bit to help neglected New Zealand animals.’

The Coffee Club has 64 cafes and restaurants throughout New Zealand supporting SPCA Cupcake Day. See here for a full list of stores.
