Lincoln Cat Care - (May News)
Well thanks everyone! The two cats at the quarantine centre are secure by the pledged funds from you all. At the high spot we hit 52 kittens in care but luckily no one else seems to have any so we are homing them OK. There were a dozen of age last weekend and they all went to new homes.
Thanks to everyone that has purchased through www.easyfundraising. org.uk/lincolncatcare If you buy anything online please log onto this site, you still get a great selection of retailers and we get a commission from every sale, so we all win.
Three events in May. On the 13th a Jumble/As New/Bric-A-Brac Sale at Brant Road Social Club from 10am until 1pm. On the 20th is our Homing Show at St Swithin’s Church, New School Lane from 10am until 2pm. The 27th has a Coffee Morning at the Central Library from 10am until 1pm. These are all in Lincoln city of course. Do try to pop in if you’re able.
The 1st and 2nd July sees our Annual Sponsored Walk. If you can get sponsors and can spend a pleasant couple of hours taking a leisurely stroll round Hartsholme Lake, please contact either me or Joyce (01522 683675) for sponsorship forms. You can go on either day.
Sorry to anyone waiting for our charity number. All the checks have been carried out and the delay is in the number-issuing department because of ‘an unusually high number of applications’. Coincided with Christmas holidays also, which I suspect didn’t help!
To reiterate YET AGAIN, the charity shop in High Street has no connection with our group now so PLEASE, if the items you are donating are for us, please ring or email and we’ll collect, but don’t drop in there. While on the subject, we always need collectables, costume jewellery, clean clothes, all forms of recorded music, books, bric-a-brac – in fact anything we can sell.
Regrettably we cannot sell furniture as we have not the storage or transport facilities.
Thanks to everyone who has taken out a standing order.
I know I rattle on about them but they do give a regular stable income and while donations accounted for far more over the year, they are difficult for us to budget by as they’re an unknown. So much of our funds goes on cats that it’s always nail-biting at the end of each month when the vet bills arrive to know if enough donations have been given. Thank you all for your support, it tells us that we may be a small group but we must be doing it right for you to keep backing us so faithfully. See you in June.
