Catstravaganza 2 Press Release

11 September 2019

News from Cats Protection - Trafford Branch

11th  September 2019

Fun day Sunday to help local cats!

Final arrangements are coming together for this year’s Catstravaganza, organised by Cats Protection-Trafford Branch, on Sunday 13th October 2019 and being held once again at Sale FC Rugby Club, Heywood Road, Sale.

Running from 3pm to 6.30pm and with free entry, Catstravanganza 2, which is being part supported by Vetcare Ltd, promises an afternoon of fun, information and entertainment for young and old. As well as face painting, children’s ‘cat theme’ fancy dress, a raffle and refreshments; including jacket potatoes, the cat-themed quiz that featured in last year’s event will be staged again this year – obviously with new questions! New for 2019 will be a performance from the fabulous, versatile soloist, Danielle Sharp. Interestingly, Danielle knows all about the efforts of this hardworking charity, having adopted a cat from the Trafford Branch.

Cats Protection-Trafford Branch’s PhilBloorsaid: “A group of our hard working volunteers organised last year’s - and the first - Catstravaganza and we were all taken aback by its success and the positive comments we got from people who came along. Our hope is that this year Catravaganza 2 will be even better! Of course, the afternoon will also give us the opportunity to talk to people about the work we do in finding good homes for cats in need, supporting and encouraging the neutering of cats, and improving responsible cat ownership. Cats Protection-Trafford Branch is currently caring for thirtycats/kittens looking for loving homes locally and forty-one cats/kittens have been homed/reunited with owners so far this year. We hope people will come along, enjoy themselves and at the same time help raise much needed funds for a very worthy cause”.
