As part of our Christmas/New Year appeal and in order to help us raise some much needed funds to neuter feral cats in county Cork, Community Cats Network have organised a raffle with some fantastic prizes kindly sponsored by local businesses and supporters. The draw will take place on Thursday 9th January 2020 in the Blackbird, Ballycotton.
Tickets are only €1 each or €5 for a book of 6 tickets, but by buying one, you could make a massive difference to the lives of feral cats. They can be bought online (books only), from various outlets (see list below) or from one of our volunteers. If you would like to help us by taking some books of tickets to sell to friends, colleagues and family, please get in touch! Photo of your ticket(s) will be emailed to you when buying online. For alternative methods of payment, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note that if collection of prize cannot be organised locally (county Cork), postage will be at your own charge.
