Gifts in Wills
It is thanks to the wonderful kindness of people who remember Cats Protection in their wills that we are able to carry out much of our day to day work. Find out about gifts in wills.


 
Volunteer
We are always in desperate need of more like minded volunteers.  There’s hands on cat work for those who can’t get enough of our feline friends (fostering), or if fundraising is more your thing, then come and join us at one of our events.  Perhaps you’re a bit of a wall-flower and just want to remain in the back ground?  We can help there too with plenty of admin roles.  We have so many interesting and varied roles that there will be something just for you!  Email coordinator@swale.cats.org.uk for more detail or visit our volunteering page HERE.  

 
Local events
Not only would we love to meet you, but we'd really appreciate the support that your attendance brings. We run tombolas, raffles, hoopla and of course sell CP items as well as preloved goods to raise money for our branch.  If you'd like to invite us to an event or if you have suitable gifts we could use as prizes, please email fundraising@swale.cats.org.uk

We also love knitted mice to sell a our events you can find more info and a pattern here.
