Message from Byron

Dear All,

I hope everyone is enjoying the Summer and managing to keep cool (since I have a black coat, that’s easier said than done!).

Mum is training for the Thames Bridges Trek on 8th September and struggling in this heat. It’s a 25km walk around London and every penny raised will go towards helping cats and kittens in our area. Mum is part of the Chiltern Cool Cats team and is doing the walk with Sue, our Coordinator, and Janice, our Treasurer. If you would like to sponsor them please visit:

Any amount donated will be very gratefully received and put to good use.

Our branch of Cats Protection is run entirely by volunteers. We have a great team of people but would like to expand, so we have the following vacant roles:

  • Speakers to give educational talks – full training and support from Head Office
  • People to answer the phone – it’s always good to be able to speak to someone rather than having to leave a message
  • A collection box fundraising volunteer – to look after our existing collection boxes and to find new locations
  • People to help with tin collections – great for people-watching and it means only giving up an hour two or three times a year

If you are interested in any of these volunteer roles please email

Our next fundraiser is the Bucks County Show and we need bottles for our tombola. If you would like to donate wine, beer, soft drinks or toiletries please get in contact.

Thank you for your continued support.

Until next time,

Byron xx
