Ella Read the news story below to learn how 8 year-old Ella Evans helped our branch of Cats Protection:

Young cat lover, Ella Evans, was presented with a certificate by Stevenage MP Stephen McPartland in recognition of her fund raising for the local branch of Cats Protection. Ella chose to have a cat-themed party to celebrate her 8th birthday and raised £75 by asking her friends to donate money to Cats Protection North Herts instead of giving her presents.

Local CP branch coordinator, Bianca Kubler, said "Cats Protection North Hertfordshire Branch is absolutely delighted to recognise this exceptional donation from such a young cat lover. Ella is a remarkable young girl in thinking of such a generous way to help the cats and kittens in our care. Thank you Ella!"

Stephen McPartland MP said, "Ella is amazing and it was my privilege to present her certificate. It is wonderful someone so young is already so committed to helping others. I am really pleased North Herts Branch of Cats Protection thanked her in such a special way."

Ella had the idea of raising money for Cats Protection after noticing their food donation bins in local supermarkets.  Ella said, "I thought, how can I donate to Cats Protection and had the idea to raise money at my party instead of having presents.  I hope it will help more cats and kittens have a lovely life."

Thank you so much Ella!!
