The refreshed shop in High Street, Long sutton

Long Sutton cat rescue charity shop reopens after big refresh

A long-serving cat rescue charity shop reopened at the weekend, days after fears were aired that it was closed for good.

Hendrik Engelbert is a new trustee with PJ Cat Rescue, in High Street, Long Sutton, and said he is keen to steer it forward and continue its work.
He said: “The shop closed in early February after the death of the founder Janet Boujaama. It has been undergoing refurbishment since then.”

Last week Graham Wells told The Voice he feared the shop would not reopen.

Mr Engelbert urged people to continue supporting the charity by donating to and visiting the shop.

He said: “The shop was quite a dump and we have painted the whole place and installed counters, shelving and repainted both shops. The main shop is for ladies’ and gents ‘clothing and miscellaneous items and the shop on the corner is for books, LP and CDs.

“All customers are very pleased the way the shop has improved.”

The shop is open 9.30am to 4pm Monday to Saturday, except Wednesdays when it closes at 12.30pm. It is also always keen to attract volunteers.
