Shirley Chisnall, Volunteer Branch Co-ordinator, said: “The branch would very much appreciate donations and clean second-hand goods.

“In addition, we would love to hear from anyone willing to volunteer their time to help run the shop.

“Funds raised by the shop will help unwanted cats in the branch’s care, so we hope local people see us as a cause worth supporting.”
