FUND RAISING COFFEE MORNING TO HELP CATS
ENJOYING RAISING MONEY
My sister Babz has to hold fund raising events at the branch of Funeralcare she runs, as part of her job, and I always give her a hand as she has her usual work to do too.
Luckily she gets to choose her own charities and this time she chose Kays Hill Animal Sanctuary as they are struggling to raise money to complete a new cattery which is very badly needed, as well as to feed more than 300 various animals and birds.
The only cat at the event was a cat shaped cake (lol) which was quite a talking point as no one wanted to cut into it.
Seeing as it would be too traumatic for a real cat to come as a mystery guest amongst so many strangers and in a strange place, Betty and Simon, two friendly old guinea pigs, came instead. They were lovely and had lots of fuss made of them.
The event was a great success, raising £146 for which Kevin who owns Kays Hill was very grateful
It took some organising and was quite a day, but very enjoyable too. At first it seemed strange having happy events in a Funeral Home, but lots of the same people come every time as well as new people and are now feeling comfortable about coming in to a usually sad place.
Babz has helped many charities over the years this way too.
