As part of our Christmas/New Year appeal and in order to help us raise much needed funds to neuter feral cats in county Cork, Community Cats Network has organised a raffle with some fantastic prizes sponsored by local businesses and supporters. Tickets are only €1 and €5 for a book of 6, but by buying one, you could make a massive difference in the lives of feral cats. See the links below to buy your tickets online… The draw will take place on the 8th of January in Harty’s Pub in Cloyne. Trad music will be on and all are welcome to join! Now, the prizes…. 1st prize is a trail in West Cork, including activities and accommodation (worth over €400). Close your eyes and imagine… Your trail begins in Garrettstown where you will get a surfing lesson for two sponsored by Gtown Surfing School (voucher for 2 surfing lessons). Next, you will head for a lovely lunch at Diva Bakery and Café in Ballinspittle before you keep driving West (€35 voucher). You need to make an obligatory stop in Skibbereen where you will be able to stock up with suncream and other products you may need for your minibreak at the Drinagh Pharmacy (€25 voucher). Once you have made your way to Cape Clear island, you will be welcome in one of the lovely cottages (voucher for a weekend at Cape Clear cottages). During your stay on the island, you can treat yourself with a dinner at Try Thai, the local restaurant (€50 voucher). After you leave the island, spend a morning Whale and Dolphin Watching (voucher for a tour for 2 people sponsored by Whale Watch Westcork). After all those adventures, you might need to refresh your haircut at Karizma Hair Salon in Skibbereen (€20 voucher). Before you leave West Cork, don’t forget to stop at Deelish Garden Centre to get a few plants to bring back home (€30 voucher). Doesn’t this sound like a dream? It could be yours if you win! 2nd prize is a Waterford Inisheer Lamp (of a value of €300). 3rd prize is a commission for a pet portrait by Perpetual Portraits (worth €120). 4th Prize is a Girlie Night-In Hamper (worth €100). It contains candles, a DVD, lotions and creams, and many other little goodies to spend the perfect night in! 5th Prize is a Johnson Hamper (worth €80). 6th Prize is a pet bed from Lazy Days Pat Beds. 7th prize is also for the kitties! It is a hamper for your feline friend. It’s a Royal Canin bag containing a Royal Canin cat bed, a bowl, a few toys and treats, as well as a sachet of our now infamous catnip (I have heard it being referred to as the best in town!). 8th prize is a €50 voucher for Debenham’s donated by one of our supporters. That could help you to cure the post-Christmas blues! 9th prize is a Cat Lover Gift Bag. 10th prize is a Love Flowers Beauty Gift Set. Special prize: this prize is only for the patrons of Harty’s on the night. It is a mixed hamper: a bit of everything to cheer you up!
