Animal lovers go on the prowl for charity in Darlington
A CAT-WALK with a difference took place in a North-East town yesterday (Saturday September 28).
A group of animal lovers dressed as cats prowled Darlington’s Cornmill Centre to raise money for charity.
The three-legged walk was inspired by the plight of Darlington woman Linda Hardy, whose beloved cat Socks was killed by a loose Lurcher-type dog in August.
Her daughter, Kelly Beckett, organised the walk with her sister and daughters to raise funds for the Cats Protection charity.
She said: “People do not do enough for cats and they might not realise that they are not just pets to some people, losing a cat is a real loss.
“There are a lot of feral cats in the area and Cats Protection come out and neuter them and do a lot to look after them.
“They do a great job.”
