Branch Coordinators Report
 Spring 2017


2017 has started off well, with 21 cats homed in January, with a grand total of 221 enjoying their new homes in 2016.

Fund raising held up well last year, with continued reliance on our fairs and outside events; but we are making efforts to diversify with an increasing proportion coming from the Cats Protection lottery, pen sponsorship and collections - Shirley and her team raised over £3000 in 2016. Jane Bolton undertook the Zambezi Challenge and made £2293 for us in sponsorship.

A new Cats Protection campaign is being launched in the Spring called "Pawsome Afternoon Tea" - members and supporters can invite their friends to afternoon tea in exchange for a donation in aid of Cats Protection. Should you be interested in helping us raise funds and have an enjoyable afternoon as well, apply to the branch for more information.

Woodley Pagoda, where we have regularly held second hand sales, and which has been a good revenue earner is currently being demolished and re-erected in a different part of Woodley Precinct, so we will lose income from this course for several months at least.

Finally, we are losing one of our longest serving fosterers - Brenda King. Brenda has been an incredible fosterer, caring for many difficult cats, taming them and sending them onto a new and happy lives for the past 15 years. Thank you and best wishes for the future.

We are keen to recruit more fosterers to help care for our cats before they are homed!

Thank you all for your support.
