Fundraising continues for East Harling cat sanctuary

Fundraising efforts will continue over the next month for a cat sanctuary in Norfolk which has been saved from closure.

Officials at the Feline Care centre at East Harling surpassed a �70,000 target set by its owners to buy the site and go independent last month. It came after charity trustees in Sussex decided that they could no longer cope with the responsibility of their Norfolk branch and gave officials three months to raise the money.

The centre will be holding an auction on Friday, November 25 at East Harling Sports and Social Club, in Church Road, East Harling, between 7.30pm and 10.30pm. The auction will include celebrity items, Christmas hampers, gift ideas, refreshments, raffle and cat stall. There will be a �1 registration fee.

The sanctuary at Roudham Road, East Harling, will also be staging a Christmas open afternoon on Sunday, December 4 between 2pm and 5pm.

In the EDP of November 1, we incorrectly stated that Feline Care in East Harling had raised �171,116 to enable the centre to stay open. The correct figure should have read �71,116. We apologise for the error.
