Yorkshire Cat Rescue opened its latest charity shop in Skipton on Saturday, with Bucks Fizz for all customers. The shop, situated at 18 Craven Court, sells donated goods and some new goods including The Fluffy Little Cat, a book written to raise funds for the charity.

Yorkshire Cat Rescue Founder Sara Atkinson said “We had a great opening day on Saturday, with many customers complimenting us on the appearance of the shop. We recruited new volunteers and we were grateful to receive donations of good quality stock. We are very much looking forward to our shop becoming part of the Skipton community, which will compliment the work we do with stray and unwanted cats in the area”.

The shop will open every day of the week and aims to raise substantial funds for the charity.

Anyone wishing to volunteer or to donate goods to the shop should call in and ask to speak to the manager, Charlotte or Assistant Manager Emily.
