Fundraising for Cherwell Cats Protection

Our volunteers host a number of fundraising events throughout the year to raise vital funds that enable us to care for cats in Cherwell. We’ve included some of the ways our supporters raised money for us below, but if you’d like to undertake your own challenge or fundraising event in aide of Cherwell Cat Protection we’d love to hear from you.
