Charity shop calling for support to help it survive

Waiting for Video...

A charity shop in the town is desperately looking for donations and volunteers to help keep the store open and continue its work in helping its feline friends.

Cats Protection is based in Seaside Road but it is struggling to survive because people dropping off items and residents able to help man the shop have been hard to find.

Shop manager Liz Cunningham said, “We appreciate times are hard but we’d really welcome donations of clean second hand goods to help us to keep going.

“People must have unwanted gifts or clothes that are taking up valuable cupboard space which would really help us out.

“The revenue the shop generates is used to supply essential cat rehoming services.

“Without this support, we would have to turn away many unwanted cats.”

The charity is keen to hear from anyone who is able to spare a few hours to volunteer at the shop and is appealing for the community who have any unwanted good quality items to donate them to the cause.

The store is currently on the lookout for different items including DVDs, clothing, books and handbags.

Shop opening hours have been extended and it is now open from 9am to 5pm on Monday to Saturday if you can help call Liz or Roz on 733888 or email: You can also find out more via its Facebook address:
