The trip sees participants completing a challenging four-day trek across the Lesser Himalayan Range, and taking part in conservation work at the Kanha National Park (full itinerary here). All sponsorship goes towards helping unwanted cats in our care.

As well as raising much-needed funds, Kelly says she hopes that training for her Indian adventure will help her to shed a few pounds and improve her fitness.

“Having worked at the Wrexham Centre I know full well how hard the staff and volunteers work to help cats in need and it will be really nice to give them a much-needed boost.”
Another plucky cat lover who has signed up to the challenge is Hannah Bolam from Morpeth in Northumberland. All of her sponsorship money will go to our East Northumberland Branch.

“I'm so excited to be a part of it! And the fact it's for the Cats Protection charity couldn't be better, cats are my world!”
To help the ladies reach their fundraising targets, you can sponsor them via JustGiving. You can sponsor Kelly at www.justgiving.com/Kelly-Eyre1 and Hannah at www.justgiving.com/hannahs-tiger-trek
“This is a golden opportunity for cat lovers to get close to big cats in India, while raising vital funds to help little cats back home,” says Cats Protection’s Fundraising Events Manager Rebecca Worth who is promoting the trip. “It promises to be the trip of a lifetime – challenging, fun and incredibly rewarding.”
“We are hoping to sign people up as early as possible so that they have plenty of time to meet the required fundraising target and we will support them with hints, tips and ideas. Anyone of average fitness can take part, with a little preparation, so we’d love anyone who’s interested to sign up today, get fundraising, and show big and little cats just how much they care!”
