How we're helping cats in Manchester

From Atherton & Wigan to Rochdale and Stockport, teams from our volunteer-run branches across the region work tirelessly to help abandoned, unwanted and neglected cats in the north west.

You're able to nominate any local Cats Protection branch or centre to receive 100% of the money you raise from your challenge, helping the cats and kittens in your chosen area.

I've got a query - how can I get in touch?
