Bringing Fife’s Top Crafters Into Focus For Charity

6 Mar
Following the success of their Winter Fair “An afternoon of Clairvoyance” Sunny Harbour Cat Rescue (Registered Charity SC041871) are hoping to yet again deliver a high quality fun event to the people of Fife.

The Madcatters Crafty Market & Makeover takes place on the 23rd March at Lochgelly Town Hall between 12 and 5 pm and promises to deliver something for everyone.

Co Founder Sarah Ross said “A wide range of specially selected high quality crafts will be on sale from local crafts people with everything from glass engraving to jewellery and hand crafted homeware to home made jam and chutney.  Our Afternoon of Clairvoyance was a huge success with over 25 different crafts people on display and several hundreds of visitors.  We hope to increase the footfall to bring even greater focus to some amazing talent in Fife whilst also raising funds for our cat rescue.”

Take the strain off your weary feet with a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy some fabulous home baking or take part in one of the afternoons activities such as makeovers, manicures or other beauty treatments available on the day from local companies.

Sarah adds ” we are proud to support the local crafts community with these events and feel we offer a unique and friendly atmosphere for people to shop, chat or just sit back and people watch over a cup of tea. Our last event raised over £1200 for Sunny Harbour Cat Rescue and we hope to improve with this event in terms of stall range, atmosphere and fundraising for the rescue.”

Overall the event promises to deliver a great afternoon out and the chance to purchase some very unique items for birthdays and special occasions or even to treat yourself.  There will also be some activities for the children including face painting and an easter egg tombola.

The theme for this Easter event is Alice in Wonderland so look out for the Mad March Hare on the 23rd March in Lochgelly.

Can you help us?

28 Aug

If you are reading this thank you for visiting to learn about our project and can we say how much we desperately need your help to reach our objectives.

Whilst you can support our project with regular or one off   monetary donations there are also several other ways you can help us create a safe future for the street cats of tomorrow, even if it is just sharing this website, telling friends and family about us and helping us raise more support.

1 way is to arrange community collections.  There are a number of items that Sunny Harbour Cat Rescue collect that we utilise to raise funds for the cat rescue.  Items such as:

  • CD / DVD / Games (Xbox, PS, PC)
  • Unwanted Gifts
  • Mobile Phones
  • Costume Jewellery, Beads, Gold / Silver Jewellery (Broken or whole)
  • Watches (Broken or Whole)
  • Good Quality Clothing
  • Foreign Paper Currency

Perhaps you could post a notice in the local shop?  Or ask friends and family or even neighbours to help in collecting goods?

You could organise a bake sale?  BBQ at home? take part in a car boot sale for the cats?

You don’t have to do anything big, even little things help and the more people we can get to support our work and help us a ‘little’ the greater chance we have to reach our objectives and continue providing first class care to more and more cats every year.

Challenge yourself with a fundraising event such as a sponsored hill walk, swim, cycle, bungee, abseil or any other activity you think would be fun and challenging to raise critical funding needed to save the cats and kittens of tomorrow from disease and sickness as well as homelessness.

If you wish to do a sponsored event remember you can use our Virgin Money Giving pages to collect sponsorship and Gift Aid online.

Whatever way you choose to help know that without you, we could not provide the care we already do for SO many cats and kittens each year.  Without you, we will never be able to improve the world for the cats and kittens of tomorrow.  We desperately need your help to spread the word, help our fundraising efforts and keep us pushing forward in these already very difficult times.

If we don’t put in place plans for the future to expand we fear that our current resources will be stretched to breaking point leaving the cats with no Sunny Harbour Cat Rescue for help.  Please, if you can, take a few moments to consider how best you can help us and our feline charges.

If you would like to know more about our vision for the future be sure to visit our main Feline Fund website.

Please do contact us with any questions you may have or ideas for fundraising you feel can help us achieve our goals.
