Welcome Message From our Chair
Worthing Cat Welfare Trust was started 22 years ago by Iris Green and myself, with a lot of help and support from Carole, Sharon, Tina, and Carole’s Mum, who bought us a van so that Carole (our Welfare officer at that time) could carry on with her important work.
At this time we had 40 cats in our care and the princely sum of £40! We did car boot sales, and any other fundraising that would help. We paid for cat food and vet bills ourselves. Carla Lane opened our first charity shop in Brighton road, which proved to be very successful and started us out on the road to where we are today.
We couldn’t have done any of it without our band of foster mums, volunteers and loyal supporters. We all kept each other going through the ups and downs at this time. Today, we still have our foster mums, volunteers and loyal supporters, and through sheer hard work and determination, 2018 has found us to be the successful charity that we are today. We are so lucky and appreciate all you do for us.
We also have new Trustees and committee members , whose enthusiasm inspires us all, and our shop at South street Tarring goes from strength to strength with Abigail at the helm.
Although we have yet to get our sanctuary, with Jackie as our dedicated welfare officer, we will carry on with the excellent job that we do, and that is rescuing and rehoming cats and kittens in and around the Worthing area
