Please stuff the turkey…

We have our turkey on our counter in the reception ready to be stuffed with lots of money for the cats over Christmas time.
We roast turkeys and serve them up to all of the homeless cats on Christmas Day.

Mr Tom was handed over to us in August 2019 because he had been living as a stray in Spain and turned up at a lady’s house. The lady moved back to the UK and bought Mr Tom with her but sadly she could not keep him. He must have been abandoned by his owner in Spain as he is an extremely friendly, very gentle, affectionate boy. He will even climb up you for a cuddle and loves being on your lap. We tested him for FIV and he is positive so he will need to live indoors for the rest of his life. He has kidney disease so he needs to have a renal diet and medication in the evenings which we can help towards the cost if needs be. Can you give this lovely boy the home he deserves? Please come and meet him.

*******Our 48th Open Day raised an amazing £5,469*****
Plus we received so many donations of food which we cannot even begin to put a price on!!
We really are overwhelmed by how generous everybody has been this year and we cannot THANK YOU enough for you amazing support.

Here a few words from Chairman of the Trustees Christopher Russell:-
Perfect weather and it was a 15% rise in the net profit on the day, what could be better. So many thanks to all who made and gave, worked or spent to make our day so special. It was particularly rewarding to see so many new faces mingling with our loyal following and so many children taking so much interest in what we do. Special thanks to those heroes of the car park Colin Jinks, Colin Campbell, Alan Bray and Tom Potts, without whom there could have been chaos in our narrow lane. To Sylvia Ing, Rosemary Solomon and Tanya (Stem by Stem of Hythe) for gifts towards the plant stall, to Claire Jell, Mary Kavanagh, Di Thompson and Lesley Fingerhut for all the cakes. To Mandy Smith from The Traditional Butchers of Hythe for the superb barbeque meats. To Kirsty Streater, Mike Whibley, Peter and Di Taylor and Viv Jell for all their help and to the home team Claire, Tracey, Ellie, Adam and Debbie in setting it all up and putting it all away.
Thank you to anybody who we have left out. We hope you all had a great day.
