Homeless cats in Luton are the lucky recipients of £1,000 thanks to the hard work of cat-loving volunteers and BT.

BT employee Allie Lonsdale is Luton charity Homeless Cat Rescue’s treasurer in her spare time and recently won a BT People Award.

The awards acknowledge BT’s volunteering champions who help others in their local community and Allie’s chosen charity will now receive a £1,000 grant.

Allie said: “The generous donation from BT means the world to both myself and to the charity, as many of the cats and kittens in our care require veterinary assistance and sometimes lengthy rehabilitation, so our funds are often stretched. For me, the BT grant recognises the tireless work that our network of volunteers has performed and I am very proud and grateful to them all.”

Allie won the award for highlighting the positive impact the charity has made with helping a feral cat colony in Luton and its ongoing message to the public on responsible pet ownership (neuter, chip and vaccinate your pet).

Amber is six and would like a home as an indoor cat. Marley is three and would be happiest in a home with no other pets.
