The Horsham Cats Protection Charity Shop is Now Open!
18 June 2018
Our brand new charity shop is now open!
Christine Harvey, area branch development manager for Cats Protection, said of the opening: "I was delighted to attend our Horsham and district branch’s official shop opening in Roffey. The branch, their kind supporters, and everyone in the retail team have been amazing at encouraging, supporting, and working towards this joint venture, making the shop’s opening a truly proud moment for everyone involved. Money raised through the shop directly funds the branch’s work and this will enable them to continue helping more local cats with neutering, rehoming and educating the public about cat welfare for many more years to come."
Anna Portnoi, coordinator of Cats Protection's Horsham and district branch, said: "I wish to thank absolutely everyone involved in the acquisition and setting up of the new shop and in particular all our volunteers, members, and supporters for their patience and contribution. We are certain that the shop will be a welcome addition to Horsham and an outstanding success if early results are an indication of how the shop will perform. Cats Protection has a long history associated with Horsham, which was until 2004 the charity's headquarters before its relocation to Chelwood Gate, East Sussex. The shop trading hours will be Monday to Saturday, 9am to 5pm, and Sunday, 10am to 4pm."
Lucy Jenkins, shop manager, added: "People have been commenting how lovely the shop looks. We are delighted by people's generosity with their donations and the friendly welcome we have received from local shopkeepers and residents. We have also been overwhelmed by so many coming forward to volunteer."
The Horsham and district Cats Protection charity shop is open Monday to Saturday from 9am to 5pm and from 10am to 4pm on Sundays.
We hope to see you soon!
