Ely & District Cats Protection Branch AND Greater Anglia - Ely Railway Station
20 July 2018
Staff from Greater Anglia Ely Railway Station collaborated with volunteers from Ely & District Cats Protection on Saturday 12th May 2018 to raise funds for local cats and kittens in need.
The event was held on Platform 1 Ely Railway Station and included a stall with Cats Protection new goods, a cat photo competition and details and photos of cats and kittens that are currently looking for a new fur-ever home. Several of our volunteers manned the stalls and were able to give help and advice on all things cat related.
The staff from Ely Railway Station (Eileen, Becci, Amanda and Shaun) provided a never-ending supply of home made cakes, dressed up as cats, and entertained all who visited the stall. Eileen also donated beautiful hand-crafted items for sale.
Theresa Langford, Membership Officer with Ely & District Cats Protection said, “With Shaun’s encouraging station announcements, and a sweepstake held at Cambridge Railway station, an amazing total of £324.25 was raised”. “We also had support from Ely’s local celebrity cat and big fan of Ely & Cats Protection – Garfield the Sainsbury’s cat. He apparently pestered his dad David into also giving us a huge donation”.
Theresa added, “I would like to say thank you so much to those customers of Greater Anglia who contributed to our fund raising on the day – we could not support the local cats without public help”.
