Home-made cakes, CP branded items and gifts, tombola, soft toys, jewellery, cat baskets, beds and toys and refreshments will be available. Free admission but donations warmly received. Spokeswoman Anna Portnoi said: “Cats Protection Horsham & District continued to assist cats in urgent need during Covid taking into account social distancing measures. In the very early days of lockdown the branch was initially severely restricted in the help it was able to provide cats and their owners.

“However, with the easing of lockdown and the veterinary practices gradually resuming their normal work, the branch can now admit and rehome cats and kittens as before and offering neutering where appropriate.

“Currently the branch is very busy with admissions, rehoming and providing advice to the general public.

“Our fund-raising events are about to resume and our shop in Fitzalan Road, Roffey, since fully reopening, continues to serve the local community, as well as raising all important funds for the cats and kittens in care. One of the main priorities for the branch this year is the recruitment of much needed new volunteers. For our current vacancies, see www.horsham.cats.org.uk. Having continued caring for and rehoming cats during the pandemic, we are delighted to be holding our first fund-raising event for two years.”
