The People's Friend supports us again in 2018

15 August 2018
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 and crocheted 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. Over the years the Love Darg developed into a nationwide charity appeal that saw Friend 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 blankets in the August 15 edition, knit soft toy cats in the August 22 edition and crochet a tea cosy in The People’s Friend Special No. 162, on sale August 22 – September 11.

The blankets will be used for the cats in our care. We only ask that you follow the safety instructions so our cats are able to use the knitted blankets. For more information visit www.thepeoplesfriend.co.uk. The knitting patterns will be up shortly. The tea cosies and soft toy cats will be sold in our charity shops to raise funds for our work.

Please note – The soft toy cat is not for use with cats.

If you have any questions about the appeal then please contact: partnerships@cats.org.uk
