Actress Carley Stenson and model Lucy Pinder want animal lovers in London to give up their time to help abandoned cats

It is part of the I’m a Celebrity... Let Me Volunteer! campaign by charity Cats Protection.

The celebrities helped with volunteering tasks including socialising cats, feeding, grooming, and ensuring pens are clean and well maintained.

West End star Carley visited the centre ahead of appearing as Princess Fiona in Shrek - The Musical that evening. She said: “It’s upsetting to know that so many cats and kittens are abandoned every year; this makes the work of Cats Protection so important.

“But they can’t do it without volunteers, so if you can spare some time, please get involved.”

Animal-lover Lucy, who owns four cats, said: “I try to do my bit for charity, particularly animal charities, so I’m really happy to be supporting Cats Protection. I hope that more people will volunteer so they can help even more cats in the future.”

The charity is urging people who are interested in volunteering their time helping cats to contact their local Cats Protection branch or adoption centre.

Guy Chadwick, Cats Protection’s development manager for Adoption Centres in the South and East, said: “Volunteering for Cats Protection is a fun and rewarding experience, particularly if you have a skill that would benefit the charity or would like to develop new skills by taking on a fresh challenge.

“Our volunteers gain a great deal of satisfaction helping cats get a second chance in life.”
