Spotlight: Purr-fect fundraiser for local animal charity

Many furry friends were made in February when residents and Friends of Summerset in Trentham attended a high tea fundraiser for Lower Hutt-based Kitten Inn. The event’s special guests were 19 kittens and cats – many just six weeks old.

Summerset at the Course Sales Manager, Jan Honnan, says the charity does a great job rescuing and caring for hundreds of kittens each year. “I wanted to do something to help raise money. Everyone who came was really generous and we raised around $400 for the Kitten Inn.”

Summerset resident Maureen enjoyed numerous cuddles on the day. “I just enjoy being with cats. We’ve always had them.” Stefanie, from Kitten Inn, says that one cat
spent half an hour snuggled on the lap of an attendee. “It was a great afternoon with the residents and Friends of Summerset – really lovely!”
