Pets At Home Fundraising weekend
26 March 2018
From Friday 23 to Sunday 25 March 2018 Pets at Home offered Cats Protection a three-day fundraising event across all of their 450 stores. Gosport CP took up residence at the Newgate Lane store with a team of volunteers raising awareness of the charity and all the great work we do in the local community. Of course we were fundraising as well with two new bespoke Simon's Cat pin badges available, CP merchandise including a new range on sale and an Easter Egg tombola. The lure of chocolate was irrestible and all the eggs were won by Sunday lunchtime.
It was great to meet so many owners and hear all about their wonderful cats. Volunteers over the weekend, Chris, Jan, Toni, Heather, Carol, Lucia, Clare, Fiona and Jo gave advice about cat care and transport man Ian made sure the CP stall goodies were in place. A grand total of £293.17 was raised over this special weekend being £254.60 from sales of CP merchandise and the Easter egg Tombola and £38.57 collected in the bucket. Thanks to everyone involved.
We'd like to thank Pets at Home and their charity, Support Adoption For Pets, for this sixth fundraising weekend and for their ongoing support.
