Barnsley born romantic novelist Milly Johnson, author of books such as ‘A Spring Affair’,   ‘Here Come The Girls’  and 'The Teashop on the Corner' is our Patron.

Milly first became known to Yorkshire Cat Rescue, then Haworth Cat Rescue, when she lived in Haworth. She became friends with our founder Sara, adopted a couple of cats from us, and the rest is history.

Milly supports us by visiting us when she is in the area, and having collections for us during her book launches.  Milly also refers to the Maud Haworth Home for Cats in some of her books … we’re pretty sure this is us!

In 2020, Milly was awarded the Romantic Novelists' Association's Outstanding Achievement Award.
