Collection at Haslemere Tesco Store

The Friends' Group Supporters gathered at the Tesco Store on Saturday 30th May 2015 to hold a bucket collection, raising: £127.82

Message from Melinda Cracknell, Co-ordinator, Friends of Haslemere Adoption Centre: Thank you to all who donated.

This is what our young helper Fay had to say about the day when she helped with her Mum Jo: I really loved collecting money for Cats Protection and I was so pleased to find out how much we collected! I blew up balloons, held the money tin and met lots of lovely people who have cats themselves. It was great fun and I definitely want to do it again! - Fay, age 10

BLISS FAIR 2014

The Friends' Group raised the following at the recent BLISS Fair 2014 held at Haslemere Hall: £192.82

Our Friends' Group Reporter has penned the following: On Saturday 8th November, the Friends' of Haslemere Adoption Centre manned a Stall at the Charities Fair that is held annually at Haslemere Hall. This was the 31st year since the event began and it is the only multi-charity market in Haslemere's calendar. It is aimed at not-for-profit organisations and we always grab the chance to be there to raise funds for the Adoption Centre, this being the main role of the Friends' Group. Early starts not being popular, our Stall was set up at Haslemere Hall the night before. Many thanks to Paul from the Adoption Centre who delivered all of our items and equipment.

Ursula, our Secretary, had her niece Finney, aged 6, staying for the weekend and Finney helped me don the Cat Outfit and then led me round the Hall. Once fully 'inserted' inside the enormous furry outfit, external visibility is rather limited! Finney also handed out CP balloons and badges to other children, a task which she did marvellously.I lasted for one hour as a Cat, before life inside the costume became too hot. I suppose I could have curled up and had a nap, which would have been a very true-to-life Cat response to such a situation!

Many thanks to all who visited our stall and those who help keep the Friends' of Haslemere Centre Group active.
