Cats Protection Christmas Fayre

Did a book signing at Henhayes Centre Crewkerne as part of the Yeovil and District Cats Protection Christmas Fayre to raise funds to help kittens and cats in the area around Yeovil in Somerset. The bedecked hall was very welcoming with some cheerful,Christmassy stalls. Plus music, minced pies and bacon sarnies.  Next to where I was signing copies of Pets in a Pickle, there was a mouth-watering display of homemade cakes. And yes, I did end up buying some. Well it’s all for a good cause I reasoned. There was a steady stream of people wanting books to be signed. All thanks to the publicity officer, Leslye Stansfield, for spreading the word in advance through flyers and ads in the local paper. 10 pre-ordered books were sold plus a further 23 during the Fayre. 50% of proceeds went to the charity. It was good to boost funds that will go towards helping our local feline friends.


Here’s Branch Co-ordinator, Judi Coffee, and Leslye Stansfied, Publicity Officer. And, no, it’s not Postman Pat with his black and white cat.
