Students bake to raise funds for cat welfare
STUDENTS at the College of West Anglia welcomed representatives of a charity to the Wisbech campus for a guided tour and to receive a cheque.
The students, all on special vocational courses, have been raising money by selling cakes. The latest charity to benefit from their efforts was the Cat Welfare Fund in Wisbech, which received �250.
Charity founder June Scotting and secretary Lindsay Kierman were invited to the college’s Wisbech campus, Newcommon Bridge, for a tour and to meet the students. They took along a pair of week-old kittens being bottle fed and a three-legged cat who has been permanently adopted by Lindsay.
The seven students aged from 16 to 19 bake every week and sell their cakes at a luncheon club. The money is divided between a local charity for the elderly and another which supports animals.
Wisbech Cat Welfare was founded 16 years ago and currently has a number cats and kittens looking for homes. For further details go to www.catwelfarewisbech.co.uk or contact Lindsay on 01945 464638. Contact June on 07710202095 if you would like to donate bric-a-brac which is sold to raise funds.
