Cats Protection’s National Cat Adoption Centre has announced a fantastic line-up of events for its annual Summer Fun Day on Sunday, July 7.

The centre, in Chelwood Gate, Sussex, will be opening its doors from 10am until 4pm for a fun-packed day of activities for all the family.

Topping the bill will be a special guest appearance from CBeebies star and kids’ favourite Sarah-Jane Honeywell who will officially open the event and meet young fans.

Visitors will be able to get a rare glimpse of what goes on at the UK’s largest cat rehoming centre, with behind-the-scenes tours of the 202-pen facility – and meet some of the many unwanted or abandoned cats looking for a new home.

There will also be many stalls and attractions including a bouncy castle, face painting, raffle, classic cars and VW campers display, live band and dance shows.

Visitors will also be able to enjoy hot and cold snacks, sandwiches and ice creams in the Visitor Centre cafe and take a stroll in the beautiful Nature Trail, part of the Ashdown Forest – see if you can find the secret fairy ring!

Tania Marsh, deputy manager of the National Cat Adoption Centre, said: “Our Summer Fun Day is one of the highlights of our calendar and is a great celebration of all things feline.

“If you’re looking to adopt a cat we’ll have staff on hand to offer advice and help you choose your perfect pet. Even if you’re not looking to adopt a cat, please come and say hello to the cats in our care – they’d love to see you!”
