Yorkshire Cat Rescue, based at Cross Roads near Keighley, faces an uncertain future, thanks to the coronavirus crisis. Fundraiser Nic Willis said the charity is facing “severe financial hardship” after cancelling fundraising events and collections, and closing its shops. She said: “With COVID-19 upon us, we’re facing a huge loss of income and are extremely concerned for our future. We’re deeply worried about how it will affect the cats that rely on us, and the people that come to us needing help. We know times are difficult for everyone right now, but we need help more than ever before. Every donation, even £1, will make a difference.

“The wonderful thing about animals, and cats in particular, is their ability to provide us with joy and unconditional love - something that is even more valuable in times like these.”

The charity is holding an online fundraising quiz and planning online raffles and auctions. They have even set up an appeal which you can donate to on their website.
