Cat charity on the prowl

Can you lend a paw?

A national cat charity has launched an appeal to find kind-hearted people who can help build the future of its Hastings branch and play a vital role in helping cats get back on their claws.

Cat-lovers with some spare time are invited to find their purr-fect roles by volunteering as committee members of Cats Protection’s Hastings & District Branch.

The branch is seeking a Branch Team Leader, Secretary, and Publicity Team Leader, as well as other roles working with cats in care and managing the fostering and adoption process. The roles require home-based working and volunteers should also be available to attend meetings, both face-to-face and virtually.

The roles are not full-time and can be completed on days and time which are convenient to the individual. The charity will provide support for the roles, including relevant training on policies.

Christine Harvey, Area Branch Development Manager, said: “This is an exciting opportunity for local people to play an active role in driving our Hastings branch. Volunteering for Cats Protection is a fun and rewarding experience, particularly if you have a skill that would benefit the charity, or would like to develop new skills by taking on a fresh challenge.

“Our volunteers gain a great deal of satisfaction helping cats get a second chance in life. We work hard to match people’s skills, interests and time availability to the roles on offer so if you have something to contribute, please get in touch!”
