Christmas Day is edging ever closer and it's time to start thinking about gifts for your loved ones. If you're the kind of person that leaves your present-buying to the last minute or you're seeking something special, you're in luck.
Cats Protection's first concept shop, Cattitude, launches in Bewdley in Worcestershire this December. Promising a unique selection of ladies' clothing and accessories, the boutique presents the ideal opportunity to purchase fantastic fashion items and great gifts, with all the money spent in-store going directly to help cats and kittens across the country. What's more, Manager Dawn Harvey and her team will be offering customers a personalised shopping experience - perfect if you're looking for a unique gift this Christmas!
Deputy Store Manager Yvonne Dawson said: "We are very excited to be the first Cattitude shop in the country. This is a great place for people to buy their loved ones some high quality, fantastic gifts at great prices, especially if, like me, they leave their shopping to the last minute."
For those with a passion for felines and fashion, there's also the opportunity to volunteer in the flagship charity shop. From window dressing and visual merchandising to stock selection and providing customer service, there are plenty of roles available for anyone looking to gain new skills, meet new people and help cats in the process. If you're looking to spare as little as a few hours a week, head along to Cattitude's volunteer recruitment session on Thursday 3 December from 12.30-3pm at St George's Hall, Bewley to find out more.
The boutique will be officially opened at 10am on 18 December, where the first 50 lucky shoppers will receive goody bags. Cattitude's opening hours will be 9am-5pm Monday to Saturday and 10am-4pm on Sunday. If Cattitude is successful, there is hope that more charity boutiques will open in 2016.
