The North Norfolk Cats Lifeline Trust (NNCLT), which has taken in neglected and abandoned cats at its Sheringham headquarters for more than 20 years, was facing closure after the death of its founder, Gay Rees, six months ago.

Keen to keep the centre open, volunteers and supporters launched a Save Our Sanctuary campaign.

The open day, which attracted supporters in their hundreds, included stalls and refreshments, with a tribute to Mrs Rees during which friends shared memories and local writers gave readings.

NNCLT trustee Sandra Branch-Burbidge said a number of people had pledged to support the campaign during the open day, with some visitors also promising homes to resident cats.
