James is dedicating his 14th half marathon for the memory of Helen, who was the beloved daughter of our Worthing branch volunteer Pat. Helen, also a cat lover and a CP supporter, lost her brave war against cancer last week and this half marathon is little something from James to celebrate her life.

Running 253 kilometres in 27 hours 50 minutes and burnt 21,800 calories.


Number of donations: 37.
Total raised: £1,124 breaking his target of £400.

If you see James running round the streets of Worthing, give him a cheer on.
Well done James.

Action Plan for Animal Welfare.


Following the Queen’s speech last week, the UK government also announced an ‘Action Plan for Animal Welfare’ which included 40 different measures it will introduce during this parliamentary session to enhance animal welfare

 

Included in this, was the commitment to bring in compulsory microchipping of pet cats and a review of snares. We will be stepping up our campaign for an outright ban on the use of snares.

 

We welcomed legislation to address low welfare pet imports, the licensing of animal sanctuaries, and measures to tackle pet theft. We also welcomed the potential use of new penalty notices for crimes against animals. While prosecution would always be the most appropriate action in serious cases of cruelty, the use of penalty notices may be a quicker and more effective deterrent in some cases where a cat is harmed.
