LONGMEAD Avenue cat rescue and rehoming centre, The Moggery, is holding a Valentine themed fundraiser - Girly Guilty Pleasures - on Saturday February 11.

A selection of handbags, toiletries and Yankee candles will be available to buy plus a variety of other girly pleasures such as hair braiding, neck massage and dry trims. It will be an event to get ladies in the mood for love with gooey chocolate cakes and tasty hot chocolate served by handsome hunks!

Christine Bayka, from The Moggery, said: “Everybody who comes along will enjoy the treats on offer. Every penny is going towards the care of the cats and kittens.”

The Valentines' Fair will be held at St Michael’s and All Angels Church Hall, Pigsty Hill, Gloucester Road from 1pm-4pm. 

The one-of-a-kind Bishopston cat shelter is appealing for donations of any unwanted Christmas presents such as gift sets, jewellery, handbags and scarves, etc, to resell at the event.  

Christine has asked that if you have anything you could donate to bring it to the Moggery at 65 Longmead Avenue, ring the doorbell but if no one is in please leave your items in the large green donation bin outside the front door.

The Moggery was opened in 1997 by Christine and the charity is run out of her former home and staffed entirely by unpaid volunteers. Christine and her dedicated team work tirelessly to rehome approximately 250 cats per year, and also provide neutering services.

The Moggery aims to provide an all-round solution for local cat problems. This may involve actions as diverse as finding a new home for the loved pet of an elderly local resident entering a nursing home, trapping and neutering a feral colony, bottle feeding abandoned kittens, or caring for the many cats left behind by tenants each year in the Bristol area.
