Studley Green Garden Centre
Charity Partner Voting.
Great news! Four Paws Cat Rescue has won the vote to become Studley Green Garden Centre’s charity partner for 2019, so many thanks to all of you who voted for us.
It’s early days yet but the management at the Centre is already coming up with a few ideas to help us raise some funds and we are looking forward to working with them over the forthcoming months.
To get things off to a very good start they have just donated a large quantity of items for us to sell in our Charity Shop. They have also put some of our collection boxes and information leaflets in their shop together with a bin where customers can donate any cat food, etc to us.
If you get a chance do pop in to the Centre and see what they are doing. The staff are friendly and always happy to give advice. As a bonus they also have a good little café!
Thank you again to all our Four Paws friends and supporters.
A Random Act of Kindness and Thoughtfulness
Following a chance conversation with one of our FPCR volunteers, a very kind lady called Carlene Heaton who is an employee at Bargain Buys in Banbury, instigated a donation of a huge supply of cat food to our charity. We would like to thank all involved in this generous gesture. It is very much appreciated particularly from the many happy well- fed cats.
An Exciting New Year Nomination
As from January 1st 2019 Asda at Wheatley have nominated Four Paws Cat Rescue as one of their token charities. This will last for three months (January, February and March). On making a purchase at the store the customer will be given a token to put in the collection box of the charity of their choice. The charity with the most tokens at the close of voting will receive £500.00. The voting will soon be underway, so please can we encourage as many people as we can to pop into Asda at Wheatley and support our charity. The publicity and the money will make a huge difference to so many ill-treated, struggling and homeless cats.
Three Parishes Fair
Four Paws Cat Rescue held a Christmas stall at the ‘Three Parishes Fair’ on Saturday 1st December at Islip Village Hall. It was a very festive occasion and the village made us feel very welcome. We raised £145 in two hours, so we were delighted and hope to be invited back next year.
A Cat’s Tale
THE STORY OF FLASH………
Flash was abandoned by previous owners when they moved home in 2014.
He was living rough, was malnourished and showed many a battle scar. 4 years of patient work from cat lover Serinne and financial support from Four Paws Cat Rescue eventually paid off.
Dedication from Serinne and donations from our supporters were vital in turning this cats life around.
Flash chose new owners in 2018 and his confidence grows daily.
He now enjoys the lifestyle he so deserves and the battle scars have healed.
