An ‘eggstrava-ganza’ held at Cats Protection’s Bridgend Adoption Centre raised over £2,000 and helped rehome nine cats for the charity.
The event, held on April 8 at the centre was a reportedly a great success, with more than 350 people attending the fun filled day. The Easter egg hunt and hook-a-duck were big hits with the children, while adults browsed the stalls and relaxed in the sun enjoying burgers, homemade cakes and refreshments.
The event was an opportunity for people to meet and make friends with the cats in the charity’s care in need of loving homes.
Audrey Inkpen (96) who used to volunteer for the centre and is a long-standing supporter said: “The centre is my favourite place to visit, I love coming here on open days and seeing all the cats.”
Bethan Potts, deputy manager who organised the event said: “We had great support on the day so we’d like to thank everyone who came along and supported us. If we didn’t receive such wonderful support from our local community, so many more cats would needlessly remain homeless.”
Susan Dobbs, centre manager said; “We had lots of lovely feedback from visitors to the event, it’s great so see everyone enjoying themselves.”
