Event Cancellations

Posted by brilomax on March 25, 2020

We’re sure that it’ll come as no surprise that in view of the Corona Virus situation, we have had to cancel some forthcoming events.

We had booked a double stall at the Preston & Blackpool Cat Club Show which was to be held on Saturday 28th of March, the show has been cancelled.

Our Flea Markets on the 5th of April & on the 3rd of May have also been called off.

It is hoped that we will be able to go ahead with our Flea Market on the 20th of September, but it is by no means certain.

In the meantime we wish all our supporters good luck & good health in these trying times, please stay safe and hopefully we will soon see the back of Covid 19.

Best Wishes from; Brian, Christine, Dawn, Jenny, Sylvia & the cats in care.

Flea Market Update

Posted by brilomax on March 16, 2020

8th March Flea Market

The weather was kinder to us last Sunday than it was in February and our visitor numbers were up. We made £1,060 thank you to everyone who made this possible. Our volunteers who give up their Sunday to man the stalls, those of you who donate items for us to sell and those who come on the day to support us.

We had a nasty incident where an aggressive customer attacked one of our regular stall holders. Many thanks to Paul and Dawn for swiftly dealing with the situation. Paul received a minor injury to his face but the customer was escorted from the premises by Dawn protesting all the way. Well Done the both of you, the police attended and the customer told he won’t be welcome in the future. I’m very proud of my daughter who didn’t hesitate to deal with the man who was much larger than her.

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

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 20th 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 So Much!    🙂

Dinah

Posted by brilomax on January 22, 2020

Dinah, is a very pretty tabby girl found as a stray and was being fed by a lovely family who would have adopted her but their own cat would not accept her.

She is about two years old, she has tested negative for FIV/Felv, also she is neutered, vaccinated & micro-chipped.

If you live local to Preston, Lancashire, and would like to offer Dinah a home then please call us on 01772 750263. We insist on a minimum donation of £50 for our adult neutered cats, you will have to agree to keep her in at night and provide a litter tray.
