Some people may think having a Coffee Morning in a Funeral Home is quite strange, but our fifth annual one for Kays Hill Animal Sanctuary at Barbara’s place of work had more guests than we have ever had before.
Some of the many people who came brought cat food and biscuits and some pitched in and helped with the washing up and the raffle ticket duties.

We also had a Bunny Tombola kindly donated by our Cats Protection Co-ordinator Marion, it’s so nice that our local animal rescues support each other too.
Barbara had made her famous cheese scones and chocolate cake and as usual every crumb was eaten.
The Easter bonnet competition attracted 16 entries and the judge decided that as they were all so beautiful, not only would there be a first and second prize but a joint third prize too for 3 of the bonnets he also liked.
Barbara and I wore ours and to be fair we didn’t enter them into the competition, they were just to encourage anyone who might have felt shy about theirs.
We raised £225.61 which is the most money ever made at any of our Coffee Mornings for various charities!
We were so busy that we didn’t have time to take many photos.
Leanne from Kays Hill brought 2 rabbits along as it would be too stressful for cats to be amongst so many strangers but the money was for the cats of course and will go towards the new cattery which is coming along beautifully now.
Kevin and Leanne have worked so hard to achieve their dream despite so many obstacles along the way.
We hope to soon have more photos of the progress of the new cattery, to share here on PoC.
It’s the time of year when more cats and unwanted kittens are relinquished to Sanctuaries and they need every penny to keep doing their good work.
Thank you again to those who donated to Kays Hill via PoC too and to Michael for setting up the paypal button for them when their own was hacked into and the money taken.
