Staff and volunteers at the North Somerset branch of the RSPCA spent a night huddled up close to the centre's animals to raise money for a new cattery.

The Brent Knoll animal centre hosted a ‘cat-nap’ event on October 14.

It saw staff and volunteers make themselves comfortable and sleep overnight at the centre, so they could experience what life is like as one of the charity’s many rescued cats.

The money raised from the event will go towards a brand-new cattery at RSPCA North Somerset, which will consist of three buildings and will see the centre’s capacity double from 40 to 80 cats.

Centre manager Nikki Tutton said: “The three new separate buildings will virtually double the capacity of cats to 80 and will increase the animal centre’s daily running costs even further.

“The staff and volunteers raised a total of £1,250 from their one-night sleepover.”
