This time last year some people predicted great things for the new decade and I thought ‘seeing in 2020’ was having perfect eyesight. Although the volunteers are still talking about Brexit and Australian wild fires, they seem more interested in news of a vaccine bringing fresh hope for a normal life.
Ollie (the Black) Cat wants me to tell you we have several cats waiting for new homes. Some were abandoned to fend for themselves last year and now await forever homes. Lots of humans find animals give as much as they receive by enriching their lives, particularly for those alone and isolated in these difficult times.
Best wishes for 2021 from all of us, including me, Kenny (the Boss) Chihuahua.
P.S. FROM OLLIE
Kenny wrote this month’s blog before Christmas so here is an update to round off the year from your feline friend
Despite universal difficulties last year, our dedicated volunteers found many ways to fundraise and December was particularly busy. Lorraine raised over £350 with a Craft Stall outside Don Tyler and Son Opticians in Tiptree. Sheila and Elaine attended the Festive Fair in Monks Eleigh, selling classy items while visitors enjoyed winning lots of prizes on the Tombola stall run by Jeanette’s team. Over £950 was raised on the day plus a further £462 when Jeanette continued the Tombola outside Roys in Sudbury the following week.
Special thanks to to Don Tyler and Son of Tiptree, and Roys of Wroxham.
That’s all the heart warming news on a very cold day from me, Ollie (the black) Cat.
