Local charity, Cats Protection Branch, has opened its brand new shop in Penwortham on Wednesday 14 December.

The Preston Branch is part of the charity’s national network of over 250 volunteer-run branches, 32 centres and 100 shops that together help around 200,000 cats and kittens each year.

Cats Protection’s new Penwortham Shop is located at 77 Liverpool Road, and sells a variety of second-hand clothes and household goods as well as bric-a-brac, books and other media.

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.”
