Cats Protection to hold Summer Fun Day

Visitors will be allowed at National Cat Adoption Centre in Chelwood Gate for the first time in over a year

Cats Protection will be holding a Summer Fun Day on Sunday 18 July at the centre, the first visitor event since COVID-19 restrictions were put in place.

The event will take place outside (the indoor cattery will remain closed to public visitors) and includes a classic car show, a dog show, trailer rides, live music, kids activities, a bar and raffle.

Tickets are £4 for adults and £2 for children (under 2s free) and need to be purchased in advance here.

Although the indoor cattery is closed, potential new owners can still find out more about the cats waiting for a new home.

Cats Protection’s National Cat Adoption Centre Manager Danielle Draper said, “We’re delighted to once again be holding our Summer Fun Day, which is always a great way to get together with fellow cat lovers and raise money for our essential work in helping cats in need.

Since our centre first closed to the public last year, we’ve been holding fundraising events online and also homing cats with our Hands-Free Homing scheme. While both of these will continue, we’re really looking forward to inviting to once again welcoming visitors so they help support our work while enjoying a fun day out.”
