HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHOP
04 July 2015
Our charity shop at 12 Croft Parade, Aldridge, WS9 8LY celebrated its first anniversary of opening on Saturday 4th July, we can’t believe a whole year has gone by already ! The event was marked with a gazebo stall outside offering homemade birthday cakes, tombola, raffle, children’s freebies and a collection, which all raised £243. It was great to see so many supporters and chat about their cat stories.
The shop has proved to be a huge success. It has a good reputation for selling a wide variety of items at reasonable prices, and continues to receive a consistent supply of quality donations from our supporters, which is fantastic. This makes the shop very popular with the locals who visit on a regular basis to see what’s new.
The shop has also provided a valuable focal point for the branch activities, and an opportunity to showcase some of the cats that we are trying to find new homes for. We also receive lots of donations of cat food at the shop, which really helps.
We couldn’t have made our charity shop so successful without the support of lots of volunteers and our shop manager’s Michelle and Lorna, whose dedication is an asset. All of the money raised by the shop goes to help the vital work of Cats Protection in the Walsall Borough Area. Help us to continue the shops success with your support by donating or buying, as together we are making a difference to the lives of many cats and kittens in a variety of ways.
