Do you have any spare time?

28 January 2016
Derby and District Branch needs to recruit a volunteer Treasurer to organise funds and enable the charity to help even more cats. The Branch, which is run entirely by volunteers, needs someone who can spare a few hours a week to oversee its finances. Experience in accounts/book-keeping is desirable and ongoing support will be provided.

We do a huge amount of work to help local cats but, due to the retirement of our present Treasurer, we really need someone as soon as possible to help us keep our finances in order to help us increase our work. You don’t have to be a financial expert, as the charity can provide assistance and support materials, but we do need someone who cares about cats and has bags of enthusiasm. By sparing a few hours a week it can make a huge difference to needy cats. We are sure whoever takes on the role will find it incredibly rewarding. It’s also a great way to make new friends – both human and feline!

As a Branch, our Headquarters require us to be self-sufficient and raise our own funds. We are not part of the Cats Protection Adoption Centre at Dalbury Lees which is wholly administered and funded by our Headquarters at Haywards Heath. However, when the cats in our care are well enough to be rehomed, they are passed to the HQ Adoption Centre to await their new homes.

Cats Protection is the UK’s leading cat charity and Derby Branch is part of a nationwide network of 257 volunteer-run branches and 30 adoption centres that together help over 218,000 cats each year. As well as finding new homes for unwanted and abandoned cats, the charity also offers cat care advice to the public and can help towards the cost of neutering.

If you are interested in this role, then please call the Branch’s Cat-line on 01332 206956 or email us at enquiries@derbydistrictcp.org.uk for further information and to arrange an informal chat.
