Annual Street Collections 2017, Round 1

The season of street collections has begun for us.

We kicked off last week in Youghal and are so grateful to all the volunteers who donated a bit of their time to help raising funds for the local community to neuter stray and feral cats. The support was amazing and we are glad to announce that €574 were raised on the day. Thank you to all who supported!

On the 29th of June, we will be collecting in Mitchelstown and would be grateful for any help you can give.

On the 7th of July, we are back in East Cork with a collection in Whitegate (9am to 6pm). Please get in touch if you can help out!

We will have more collection after the summer: Fermoy on the 14th of September, Castlemartyr on the 29th of September, Carrigtohill on the 20th of October and finally Midleton on the 27th of October. Thank you to all who offer their time to help out as the success of these collections depends on you!

Readathon 2015: Some Inspirational Words from Kids

First of all, we would like to apologise for the delay in publishing the results. We were waiting for the late returns and then got caught in the Christmas frenzy…

We are delighted to announce that €112 were raised by the kids so far. It is so great to see young persons being concerned about the welfare of cats and we are absolutely thrilled by your support! Well done to all!

We have received some lovely letters from them and want to share them her with you. Their words give us hope for the future of cats and should inspire many grown-ups!




We have now done the draw and the results can be seen here. We will get your certificates of participation and gifts to you during the week.

We are still waiting for more returns and gifts will be sent out then.

Thank you so much for taking part and well done for your reading and fundraising! All the community cats are really grateful to you and so are we!

We hope to see you next year!
