An appeal for donations - can you help?

Winter is a difficult time at Woodland Nook. People are feeling the post-Christmas pinch, plus the shelter needs heating 24/7, regardless of how cats are living there. 

This is why Jane is making an urgent appeal for donations. She says: “Lack of funding is now a problem which is why I've only got seven cats in the shelter. It’s so sad because I know there is a desperate need out there and I could take more babies as I have the room but not the money.”

Averaged out over the year, the shelter’ s weekly costs are £362, which includes £150 for consumables such as food, litter, medications and cleaning supplies, £40 for electricity, £15 for an extra large wheelie bin... the list goes on. 

Any repairs to the shelter are on top of this, which is why Jane is so grateful for a fantastic £1,000 towards repairs to the isolation section of Woodland Nook, but the bills keep coming in.

For this reason, Jane is inviting supporters to donate £5 a month (or whatever you can afford) to help keep Woodland Nook financially afloat. This can be set up through your bank as a standing order. If you are able to do this to help a wonderful cause, the bank details are:

Woodland Nook Cats Home
Yorkshire Bank
Sort code: 05-07-15
Account no: 47127069

If this is not possible for you, for whatever reason, Jane is always grateful for donations of consumables, such as cat litter, cat food pouches (not biscuits while Loki is at Woodland Nook, due to his dietary requirements) and cleaning materials. The shelter even has an Amazon wishlist, so you don’t even have to lug heavy items around... you can have it delivered straight to where it’s needed. Go here for details. 

Thank you so much for anything you can do to help.
