South Ayrshire Cats Protection should have ended January on a high note after the good people of Ayrshire helped to find homes for two special cats.
Instead they are mourning the loss of a very good and respectperson.
Elizabeth (Libby) Murdoch from Prestwick, was a familiar face to many supporters and adopters but sadly, after a short sudden illness, she past away.
For almost a decade, Libby devoted many hours to the branch as a volunteer, and was frequently manning the offices or fundraising stalls.
Her early retirement from Nats due to a stroke, was in fact the cats gain and she spent much of her time fostering.
Libby was a down- to- earth lady, who loved her bling and rarely had the same hair colour for more than six months.
Libby had a dream of a small cat adoption centre in Ayrshire so any cat requiring care could obtain it.
In memory of Libby and the efforts and hours she gave to the unwanted cats of Ayrshire, the charity are maximizing fundraising efforts with renewed energy to make this dream a reality one day.
If you would like to help and make a donation you can do so online by visiting www.cats.org.uk/donate or by posting a cheque to South Ayrshire Cats Protection, 5 River Street, Ayr, KA8 0AX. Perhaps you have a great fundraising idea of your own that they can support you with, on their behalf?
