Local Arbroath author Louise Burness will donate a percentage of the proceeds of each of her books to a charity close to her heart.

After adopting strays from Cats Protection, Laura wanted to do something unique to help them raise money.

At the Christmas Fayre, held at the Community Centre, you will be able to pick up adult fiction ‘Crappily Ever After’, ‘Ivy Elf’ or childrens books ‘Rock Upon A Time’ and ‘Under The Sun’ by Louise and also have the opportunity to have the books signed.

“If it would help funds, then I am be more than happy to get involved and do my bit,” Louise said. “I’ve got all my rescue cats from the Cats Protection. They do such amazing work.”

Louise has written four books and is working on her fifth.

Volunteer and education officer Margaret Miller said: “We are delighted that Louise has offered to do this, it is a completely different idea.

“We need ever penny and idea.”

The shelter has rehomed 428 cats so far this year, and are delighted at the support the community shows but there’s always a stream of cats waiting to come in.

The sales are November 9 and December 7 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon with a donation requested on entry and teas, coffees, mince pies and bacon rolls will be available.

Cats Protection Arbroath and Carnoustie are also offering a £5 neutering service to those who require financial assistance, to encourage owners to neuter their cats.
