This is a short note to say that I have made a £100 donation to the Walsall branch of Cats protection as part of the regular PoC donations. Cats Protection do wonderful work and I am a member. Leah, a regular supporter of PoC, made the suggestion. I have made previous donations to Cats Protection (Chelmsford Branch)
I’m sorry that the payment is late but the amount is exactly as stated based upon what is really a regular amount of comments every month.
Because the number of comments every month is fairly similar and because I’m rather bad at doing administration and much prefer to write articles, at this time, I’m thinking about setting up standing orders totalling £100 per month to four cat charities.
Regular visitors might not know this but in the background I have been making a $25 per month donation to Maine Coon Cat Rescue in the USA. This has been going on for about 5 years.
That donation is in addition to the ones I make regularly based on the number of comments.
Accordingly, I intend to maintain that background donation to Maine Coon Cat Rescue (the name of the charity has changed but but I wish to continue to donate) while adding three more, one of which will be Snow Leopard Trust.
I do want to make a donation to a wild cat charity and my favourite wild cat is the snow leopard. In addition, the Snow Leopard Trust do wonderful work (example).
There remains, therefore, two other cat charities to which I wish to make routine standing order donations, as mentioned.
I would like Kays Hill to be one of those charities in recognition of the unfailing and unstinting support by Ruth and Barbara who both themselves support the charity very closely (recent article).
The fourth charity is yet to be decided and I will write about that later and would welcome anyone’s feedback.
Thank you for being so patient about this late payment.
