His Sea Cow burger, which was a combination of a tender beef patty with fried calamari and tartare sauce, was featured on the Eagle Peak Spur menu for six months.

“A percentage of the turnover from the sales of the burger went to a charity of Mr Staples’ choice, which was the SPCA,” said Elmar Gouws of Eagle Peak Spur.

Mr Staples said he chose the SPCA as he believed the organisation did a lot within the community.

“They are the underdogs of Newcastle, and my heart goes out to animals.”

However, Mr Staples’s generosity has not ended with merely selecting the SPCA as the beneficiary of the money.

“My company, The Recruitment Guy, will match the money raised at Eagle Peak Spur,” he said.

Michaela Kissmer and Heather Gero of the SPCA collected the cheque from Spur and were ecstatic about the donation.
