A cat rescue centre has appealed for much-needed food donations amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Feline Care, which is based in East Harling and has charity shops in Attleborough and Diss, says it is in “desperate need” of food, especially tinned products.
The shortage has largely been brought about by the COVID-19 outbreak, which has had a significant impact on deliveries in recent days.
The centre was also forced to cancel its Easter open day, its biggest event of the year and a major source of donations.

It is also short of wood chip cat litter, old towels, thick bleach, kitchen roll, washing up liquid and dishwasher consumables.
