Brighter outlook?

Today has been noticeably busier both in the office and our charity shop below us - must be the turn in the weather?

The best call of the day has to be from the Head Teacher at Manchester Girls School. One her pupils, Emma, aged 11, heard how strapped for cash we were and organised a cake sale. She contacted a local manufacturer and got heaps of cakes donated and sold them for 20p a go. There were so many that it took 4 morning breaks to sell them all, as they only have 10 minutes each morning.

Emma raised the phenomenal sum of £150! Well done Emma - just amazing.

On another positive note, we have found a wonderful home for our little dog Jacks (pictured). He is going to live with another dog and a family, who are at home all day long - which is just fantastic.

Despite being closed to admissions a little pretty girl called Molly has come into our care. She is a 10wk old kitten who was rescued after being stuck up a tree and being picked on by magpies. The rescuer is going to adopter once she is neutered etc but that still leaves with another 22 kittens to find homes for.

Hey ho - tomorrow's another day and I'll be back on line tomorrow.
