A fundraising drive by a Welwyn Garden City clothes shop has paid off for the Welwyn Hatfield Cats Protection.

Staff at FatFace in the Howard Centre were thrilled to hand over a cheque for just over £838.

While many retailers slash their prices for Black Friday in the run up to Christmas, FatFace stores donate instead of discounting.

Staff in Welwyn Garden City added to this by holding a raffle to win a hamper and a guess how many sweets in the jar competition.

Assistant manager Cara Spicer said: “Our local charity, chosen by myself, was the Welwyn Hatfield Cats Protection.

“As a cat lover and someone whose family have fostered a cat through the Cats Protection I saw them as a great choice.

“The money we raised will help towards the veterinary costs for the 20 cats they currently have in care.”
