sponsored walk

Venue: Bishop Auckland
please support Barbara Bates in her sponsored walk for us- good luck Babz!!! if you would like to sponsor Barbara click donate button or email
On Thursday 31st May a work colleague and I are doing a short sponsored walk in fancy dress from my Funeralcare office in Shildon to Bishop Auckland Town Centre via the bypass, it’s around 4 miles and The Co-operative Funeralcare, always keen to help in the community, is allowing us to do this fundraising during work time for which my colleague Julee and I are very grateful.
Julee will be going as a dog and raising money for Hope Animal Sanctuary near where she lives in Loftus and I will be a cat and raising funds for Cats Protection Wear Valley & Darlington Branch. My theme will be the importance of neutering and micro-chipping cats, or, in short, responsible cat ownership. Once we reach Bishop Auckland Town Centre we will be doing a couple of hours of street collecting and I have CP stickers, gonks and balloons to give away. We are hoping to raise at least £100 each for our charities and if we do The Co-operative Booster Fund will give each of our charities another £100, making them £200 each.
(Thank you to The Co-operative Group.)
As an unneutered queen without kitten-care I will have to take my latest litter with me and have been given a pushchair to transport my babes in, oh if only I had been spayed as a kitten!
If anyone feels they would like to sponsor me, no matter how little per mile, I’d be very grateful, but also I don’t want anyone to feel pressured or obliged. It should be a bit of fun, I have to make my costume yet, but I really hope to make a good amount for CP who rehomed three of the abandoned cats last year and ended up with some hefty vet bills.

Cats Protection Wear Valley Darlington Maisy

Heavily Pregnant Maisy enjoying a meal safe and dry unlike a few days ago when she was huddled under a bush cold and wet..
This poor little cat was living out in all the floods and was soaking and filthy when our volunteer went to her rescue, pregnant with sneezes and watery eye she also has ear damage which will need treating, she was afraid and traumatised so at the moment we are feeding her up and giving TLC before she starts the vet visits in a few days
