2020 - What a year it's been!

Article Index

Well 2020 has certainly been a memorable year for everyone and in many different ways – unfortunately, not all of them positive.  However, we would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every single one of you who has supported us this year.



Whether you have donated money, items, your time to help with the never ending 'to do' list, or have simply liked one of our social media posts.  Your actions have directly contributed to our survival of this year and the achievements we are so pleased to say we have still managed.

With your help we have rehomed a record numbers of cats and kittens (over 300) cared for our largest number of kittens, admitted large numbers of admissions; 27 animals admitted over just one weekend!  We have had the cattery of our dreams built during lockdown, designed and launched our first charity calendar and you have helped us to find the finances to allow us to continue our life changing work when our usual fundraising calendar had to be cancelled.  We have also been lucky enough to receive nominations for Pet Plan & ADCH Animal Charity Awards 2021 in all three categories.  What a year hey?

2020 has definitely been a year that has been endured, survived and with your help conquered!  It has only been possible thanks to the dedication of our wonderful staff, volunteers, trustees and supporters – each person as important as the others.  All of us would like to give you a heartfelt THANK YOU! For getting us through another year (which isn't always a given) and especially one that has been as testing at this one has.  A team effort it certainly has been, and we are looking forwards to being able to enjoy the festivities with our families as much as we are allowed, in between the work that still continues here, 365 days a year. 

We would like to wish you a very happy and healthy Christmas, which although it may be different to usual, we hope you are still able to find and enjoy the magic of this season and let’s all look forwards to a new year with positivity and hope.

Merry Christmas and thank you!
