The People's Friend - Love Darg Appeal

16 August 2017
The People

We are pleased to announce that we have been chosen to benefit from The People’s Friend Love Darg appeal again this year. After the success of last year, we are hoping that we will have even more fantastic knitted items sent to us to help the many cats in our care.

Love Darg, meaning a day’s work done for love, is The People’s Friend magazine’s annual charity appeal. As the years passed, the Love Darg developed into a nationwide charity appeal that saw readers make and donate thousands of gifts which were distributed to hospitals, children’s homes and hospices the length and breadth of the UK.

This year, readers are being encouraged to knit mice and square comforters for Cats Protection (16 August and 23 August edition of The People’s Friend), so pick up a copy of The People’s Friend magazine this August and learn how to make a knitted mouse or square comforter. We only ask that you follow the safety instructions so our cats are able to use the items. For more information visit the website.
