Lyn our charity shop manager and her excellent team, Lyn2, Jenny, Doreen, Val, Tracey, Pat, Gary, Mark, our volunteers who turn out to help at fund raising events including Tracey, Lesley, Eileen and Aileen, our army of knitters who lovingly make the beautiful knitted goods we sell, the organisations who afford us the opportunity to fund raise especially Asda St Leonards On Sea and ESK store Hastings, the organisations who kindly put out our green collecting boxes, there is a list of these organisations on our Cat Call home page see https://catcall.org.uk/ also the caring individuals who keep our collecting boxes at home. Sue who is developing our on-line sales and finally our vet 1066 for their care and compassion, and Badgers Oak vet when we need out of hours.
Cat Call is like a wheel ever turning, everyone listed above is a spoke in that wheel, everyone makes the work possible and has a vital role, if just one spoke fails the work will falter or cease. At a time when there are many charities all working on great causes, all after your time and money, THANK YOU All for helping Cat Call – from the Cats of Hastings, St Leonards, Bexhill and Battle xx
