Neo (A sign of the times?)

Posted by brilomax on June 10, 2018

Neo aged 14 years and in good health was taken to the vets by his distraught elderly owner with the instruction to have him put to sleep if a home could not be found for him.

This gentleman is recently widowed and not long ago had to have his pet dog put down due to age related problems.

His landlord had reviewed the terms of the tenancy agreement and decided that pets were no longer welcome in his properties!

Lancashire Cat Rescue have stepped in, had him tested for FIV & Felv and also had him chipped & vaccinated.

Great News!

One of our long term Lancashire Cat Rescue supporters has now given Neo a loving forever home.

Flea Market Update

Posted by brilomax on May 7, 2018

6th May Flea Market

Thank you so much to everyone who came to help on Sunday 6th May, we had a very good day despite circumstances being very much against us.

Being an indoor venue the weather which was beautiful did not do us any favours, we also had a lot of competition with from other events in the area with it being a Bank Holiday weekend, plus we struggled for stallholders to fill the hall.

Despite all the competition and although it was very quiet at first, visitor numbers were not too bad, we had a steady trickle of customers throughout the day.

Total profits for the day came to  £780.00, which given the circumstances was a wonderful result, because of all the other things happening on the day spending per visitor was much less than average.

Our  Tombola was very popular as ever and we did very well in the kitchen.

A big “thank you!” to you all.

We are now having our Summer Break from Flea Markets. We start all over again on the 23rd September,  please get in touch if you can help in any way.

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 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 23rd September 2018).

So please keep the donations coming.

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

To book a stall call Christine on 01772 750263.

Thank You!    🙂

Cat Show Update

Posted by brilomax on March 25, 2018

We had a great day at the Preston & Blackpool Cat show on the LCR stall on Saturday the 24th March.

In the past twelve months we’ve been putting our best cat related donations to one side specifically for selling at cat shows, it certainly paid off as we raised a magnificent £270.

We had a lot of cat carriers this year, but for some reason we completely blanked this time, last year we sold them all! It’s a funny old game trying to anticipate what our customers might want to buy.

Thanks to everyone that came to help, donated items or turned up and bought something from the stall.

We couldn’t do it without your continued support.

Our next event is the Flea Market on Sunday 8th of April, hope to see you there.
