AN ANIMAL welfare charity is looking for a volunteer treasurer to help oversee its finances.

Cats Protection’s Derby and District Branch, which is run entirely by volunteers, is looking for someone with experience in accounts and book-keeping, who can spare a few hours every week.

Des Tait, the branch co-ordinator said: “We do a huge amount of work to help local cats but, due to the retirement of our present treasurer, we really need someone to help us keep our finances in order to help us increase our work.

“They don’t have to be a financial expert, as the charity can provide assistance and support materials, but we do need someone who cares about cats and has bags of enthusiasm.

“By sparing a few hours a week it can make a huge difference to needy cats.

“We are sure whoever takes on the role will find it incredibly rewarding.

“It’s also a great way to make new friends, both human and feline.”

Cats Protection is the UK’s leading cat charity.

The Derby branch is part of a nationwide network of 257 volunteer-run branches and 30 adoption centres that together help more than 218,000 cats each year.

It is the largest purpose built cat centre in the area and was opened in 1998, with 100 pens to house more than 150 cats and kittens.

As well as finding new homes for unwanted and abandoned cats, the charity also offers cat care advice to the public and can help towards the cost of neutering.

More information is available by calling 01332 206956.
