Draw for hamper in Clonmel

We are having a raffle to win this lovely hamper in Southview Vets in Clonmel. Lines are €2 each and the draw will take place on the 26th of February. Please support by calling down and buying a line. All proceeds will go to neuter stray and feral cats in the town.

Unfortunately, without the support of the community for fundraising, we can only offer limited assistance and often have to turn down TNR projects if the carers cannot afford the discounted rate of neutering. Please, consider supporting this fundraiser, organising a fundraiser or donating to the South Tipp fund so that the great work started by our volunteer in Clonmel last year can continue.
