Minehead & District Cats Protection Needs You!
We want to help. We hate to say 'no'. The hard fact of life is that the amount of help that we can give is governed by the number of volunteers that we have, and the amount of money that we can raise. Please consider joining the branch as a supporter or a volunteer.
We do not have a shelter, and potential fosterers and adopters are asked to contact us to discuss the cats currently available for adoption.
Our branch is run totally by unpaid volunteers. If you would like to get involved - see the Volunteer page on this website.
Unlike branches in more prosperous areas, we don't have much of a legacy income, or wealthy supporters. We raise most of our money from our Charity Shop in Minehead, Wellinton Square.
If you wish to help us financially, please click on the Donate bucket icon above, or send cheques made payable to CP Minehead Branch, UK, or pop into our shop and donate there.
Your donations, large or small, will make a huge difference to the lives of the unwanted cats and kittens in our care. Without you we simply wouldn't be able to continue with our valuable work. Click on the 'bucket' in the top right hand corner.
Legacies are always gratefully received. If you are thinking of making or changing your will, please remember us. Do specify in your will that any legacy is for the Minehead Branch. We can provide a leaflet about your will on request.
If you want to give your time, you can offer to help in our Charity Shop in Wellington Square, Minehead. There are a variety of different roles involved from manning the till to steaming the clothes ready for hanging in the shop.
We are keen to see our hard earned funds directed towards cat rescue. However, there are overheads involved, mostly unavoidable costs such as advertising, vehicle running costs, postage etc. The list below shows what we need at the moment. If you can help, please let us know.
CHARITY SHOP (01643 704501) - Please pass your unwanted gifts, clothes, old rags, bric-a-brac, CDs, books to us. The shop can sell them or if they are not good enough to sell, they will raise money as "rag" which goes to other countries and re-use as rag.
We can collect from your house if you wish. Telephone the shop to arrange this
Toiletries - You know what we mean, unopened, unwanted gifts, leftovers from gift sets, souvenirs from hotel rooms - we can use them to make our own gift baskets.
CONTACTS FOR COLLECTABLE ITEMS - We are often given books and records, and would like to find the right market for them. Contact us if you are interested.
Donate Cat Food - in our shop, or at WILLITON PET CARE
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT
