Pro­tect­ing cats

The Arran Banner - - News -

Sir, In the run up to Na­tional Vol­un­teer­ing Week (June 1-7), Cats Pro­tec­tion would like to ex­tend our thanks to the many thou­sands of vol­un­teers through­out the coun­try who of­fer their time and ex­per­tise to help cats and kit­tens across the UK.

In 2017 our 10,200-strong vol­un­teer net­work con­trib­uted an in­cred­i­ble 5.5 mil­lion hours, each vol­un­teer gift­ing a wealth of ex­per­tise and im­mea­sur­able pas­sion to the char­ity.

Their ded­i­ca­tion en­abled Cats Pro­tec­tion to help around 200,000 cats and kit­tens na­tion­wide.

Cats Pro­tec­tion is al­ways on the look­out for new vol­un­teers to join the UK’s big­gest cat com­mu­nity.

Though a large part of our work is help­ing cats, through fos­ter­ing and re­hom­ing, our vol­un­teers have the op­por­tu­nity to be­come in­volved with a range of in­ter­est­ing ac­tiv­i­ties such as or­gan­is­ing fundrais­ing events, help­ing with pub­lic­ity or man­ag­ing funds and re­sources to ben­e­fit the great­est amount of cats.

Vol­un­teer­ing can of­fer the chance to de­velop skills such as time man­age­ment, in­ter­per­sonal skills and team­work, mak­ing CVs much more at­trac­tive and of course help­ing cats.

Any­one who is in­ter­ested in be­com­ing a vol­un­teer can go to our web­site https://www.cats.org.uk/ get- in­volved/vol­un­teer­ing to find out more.

Yours, Julie Mered­ith Cats Pro­tec­tion
