A few updates...

Lots to report as we’ve been bogged down with the calendar for the past couple of weeks.

Calendar update

A big thank you to everyone who sent in pictures. We’ve had some fabulous entries and a few lucky volunteers will have their work showcased and be put down on the list for a free calendar when it becomes available.

Choosing the pictures was a very difficult task and involved lots of people! Some images were left out for simple reasons such as shape and size. Don’t be put off if yours wasn’t chosen – keep taking those pictures for the 2016 calendar!

No spoilers just yet but we can tell you that the calendar will be A4 and available for £8 plus shipping (charged at cost). A limited supply will be available, so why not order yours now? CLICK HERE to email Jane and place your order.

Events update

We have lots of fundraising events coming up, which we hope you will support. Remember, Woodland Nook is funded entirely by your donations ... and you can imagine the size of the cat food bill! Hope to see you at one or more of the following:

Sunday, 23rd November, 11am-4pm: Christmas Market, Genesis Centre, Alfreton. Tombola and cake stall – prizes and home baking donations very gratefully received!

Friday, 28th November, 4.45pm-7pm: Christmas Lights Switch-on, Alfreton House, High Street, Alfreton. Woodland Nook is serving pies and peas!

Sunday, 7th December, 11am-4pm, Santa Claws Fundraiser, Woodland Nook, Delves Bank Road, Swanwick. Our first event to be held INSIDE the shelter!

Cats update

Finally, there have been some comings and goings at Woodland Nook in the past few days. Buddy,  Paddy and the last of the Jellybeans (little black kittens) have all gone to their new forever homes. Fifi and Fido are leaving on Sunday.

Fido and Fifi... off to their new home tomorrow

Graham - found his forever home
Remember Graham? He arrived in a very sorry state and had to be kept isolated because, despite craving human contact, he was very aggressive towards the other cats. The great news is that his foster mum has decided to keep him... and he’s now healthy, happy and flea-free! Well, he’s such a loving cat, that we knew she wouldn’t be able to resist his charm!

And we’ve welcomed Juliette and her babies, into the shelter, too! A busy couple of weeks!
