Flea Market Update

Posted by brilomax on April 9, 2018

8th April Flea Market

Thank you so much to everyone who came to help on Sunday 8th April, we had an excellent day, spring was in the air with lots of visitors spending their money.  Total profits for the day came to  £1,270, a wonderful amount and much needed to help with the cats in our care.

Our  Tombola was very popular and we did very well in the kitchen. In fact all areas were well above average.

We had made a significant investment in new signage for this event, time will tell if the new, larger signs are tempting more passers by than in the past.

A big “thank you!” to you all.

We do it all over again on the 6th May, 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 8th April 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.

Sweetpea

Posted by brilomax on January 4, 2018


Sweetpea 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 eighteen months old and has been neutered, vaccinated and chipped. Sweetpea has now come on in leaps and bounds, although still a little shy we feel she is ready for her forever home.
