Cats Protection’s National Cat Adoption Centre will be holding a Teddy Bears’ Picnic as part of the Big Help Out – and everyone’s invited!

The event, taking place on Monday 8 May at the centre in Lewes Road, Chelwood Gate, will be a chance to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III in the scenic surroundings of the Ashdown Forest.

Entry is free and everyone is welcome to come along with their teddies and picnics to join in the fun between 12pm – 2pm.

As well as celebrating the coronation, the event will be an opportunity to find out more about volunteering opportunities at Cats Protection.

Deputy Manager of Cats Protection’s National Cat Adoption Centre Tania Marsh said: “Our charity helps thousands of cats every year, but this is only possible thanks to our amazing volunteers who do so much to help cats in need. We’re incredibly grateful to all of them, so this day will be about celebrating them as well as the coronation.

“Everyone is welcome and we will be on hand to help people find out more about becoming a volunteer for Cats Protection. We have many roles available, from hands-on cat work to helping out with social media.

“Volunteering is a great way to learn new skills, make new friends and feel like you’re making a difference to a good cause. If you love animals – especially cats – then we’d love to meet you!”

Volunteers at Cats Protection’s National Cat Adoption Centre help care for cats like Khaleesi, who has been at the centre since December 2022.

The friendly moggy loves to play and is looking for a home where there won’t be many cats in the neighbourhood, as she isn’t a fan of other cats.

To find out more about adopting Khaleesi or any of the cats currently being cared for at the centre, visit Cats Protection’s National Cat Adoption Centre website.
