VOLUNTEERS at the Cat and Rabbit Rescue Centre will be sleeping out in the cold to support their much-loved feral cats.
The Sidlesham centre looks after a number of feral cats and the staff will join them for one night only to raise cash and awareness.
Money raised will go towards improvements for the barn to help keep out the drafts and keep the animals warm.
“The shutter for our very draughty barn is £3,400, so we have got a little way to go to help keep our residents warm,” said centre liaison officer Claire Hyde.
There are about 50 cats which live on the Sidlesham site which will probably never be rehomed –but live on the land and are fed by the rescue centre.
The sleep-out will raise money for the new shutters, but also raise awareness of the strays.
There will be 13 volunteers sleeping out in the feral cat’s barn at the centre on Saturday, January 25, and they’ve raised more than £1,253.21 already on their online donations page.
All the staff will also be in fancy dress for the rehoming day held earlier on January 25.
Visit the rescue centre in Chalder Lane, Sidlesham, between midday and 2pm to rehome a cat or kitten, or to give donations towards the feral sleep-out.
