Flea Market Update

Posted by brilomax on May 19, 2019

5th May Flea Market

Apologies for the lateness of this update, things have been a bit hectic lately.

Many thanks to everyone who donated items for our stalls. We had some nice prizes for the Tombola which did well, special thanks to Jane for her donation of lots of chocolates and sweets with which she had gone to a lot of trouble to create attractively gift wrapped packs of goodies. 

The kitchen did well and again Dawn baked her wonderful cakes and with additional contributions from our regular bakers. Thanks to everyone who helped in the kitchen, unlike the rest of us that can take the weight off our feet now and again the kitchen crew are busy and on their feet all day from until 2.30 pm. They then have to clean up to leave the kitchen tidy, it’s a long day and we appreciate their help.

Thanks also to our many helpers on the stalls and in the foyer who haven’t had a specific mention, we couldn’t do it without you. A big “thank you!” to you all.

We managed to raise a very welcome £1,150 to enable us to continue rescuing and re-homing stray and injured cats and kittens.

We are always looking for volunteers to help on the day, can you spare a couple of hours? We have a very friendly group of volunteers but could always use a few more helping hands.

Could you bake some cakes for us?

Give us a call on 01772 750263 (preferably after 6pm any evening) if you would like to help in any way.

Needless to say we have now run out of good quality prizes for the Tombola and will need to collect many more prizes for our next Flea Market (Sunday 22nd September).

So please keep the donations coming.

If you have any items to donate, please Tel Christine on 01772 750263 or Sylvia on 01772 716837.

Thank You!    🙂

Solar has come into our care because her owners were moving into rented accommodation but couldn’t take Solar with them.

Solar is confident and very friendly, she is fully vaccinated and micro-chipped.

She originally came from the RSPCA and was born in August 2016.

Because she been neutered, vaccinated and chipped we expect a minimum donation of £50 and as with all LCR cats & Kittens, any potential adopter will have to agree keep her in at night and provide a litter tray.

Mimsie is one of the “Cemetry Road Cats”, their keeper moved house and left them behind to fend for themselves.

A nearby resident built them a shelter in her backyard and kept them well fed, her own cats weren’t too happy about these intruders though and we were asked to help. We took them in but because they hadn’t been handled much they were all quite timid.

She is about two years old and has been neutered, vaccinated and chipped. Although Mimsie is still quite nervous we feel she is ready for her forever home with a very patient and understanding carer in a quiet home.

Failing that we would be happy for her to go as an outdoor cat to a small holding or stables environment.

Call us on 01772 750263 if you live local to Preston, Lancashire & would to offer Mimsie a forever home.

UPDATE! (09/05/2019)

Mimsie now has a lovely outdoor home in the countryside with Ruth.
