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
