The charity Cats Protection is appealing for people to come forward with good quality goods for its Stone shop to help give local cats a brighter future.
The shop is struggling because donations have dropped dramatically. They are desperate for women’s clothing, shoes and accessories.
“We appreciate times are hard but we’d really welcome donations of clean second hand goods to help us to keep going. People must have unwanted gifts or clothes that are taking up valuable cupboard space which would really help us out,” said Jess Keitley, Shop Manager.
“The revenue the shop generates is used to supply essential cat rehoming services. Without this support, we would have to turn away many unwanted cats.”
Sadly many cats are still given up or abandoned every day, placing a heavy burden on the charity’s services. Cats Protection has around 5,000 and 6,000 cats in its care at any one time across the country, all being looked after until loving new homes are found.
The shop, on Stone High Street, sells a variety of second-hand clothes, bric-a-brac and books.
Shop opening hours are between 9am-5pm Monday to Saturday.
When bringing donations, you can drive down the High Street and park outside the shop before 10am and after 4pm. Alternatively, they may also be able to arrange collections. Please call Jess, the Shop Manager, on 01785 818214.
