    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    I love Cats, I love Skiathos so this is so close to my heart.

    Skiathos Cat Welfare has been helping the stray cats since 2005, they have neutered over 6000 cats.

    Its a 365 day a year job. The charity is TOTALLY reliant on donations, for food, medications, and so much more. Not just for the cats and kittens in the charities care but those all around the Island.

    Last year I volunteered during my annual trip to Skiathos. WOW what an eye opener that was.

    So many cats in the charities care needing so much love and care. Kittens needing bottle feeding, sick cats, blind cats. What struck me was how well these cats in the charities care at that time around 150 all seem to get along. How would these cats have survived without the intervention of SCWA and the support of cat lover

    In November 2017 due to personal circumstances these cats have to find somewhere to go as the current location is up for sale. A crowdfunding page was set up to raise funds to relocate the charity, you can find the details here and the massive effort to buy new land. A fantastic documentary highlighting the crisis is also available on the crowdfunding page

    I want to HELP this charity and the cats and kittens it cares for.  I have decided to take on my biggest challenge and walk Skiathos Island from bus stop 26 Koukanaris to bus stop 0 Skiathos town, then cross the road to Fresh Bar, which is approximately 8miles. There are many twists, turns and hills to climb. For those of you that know Skiathos i am really not looking forward to Esperedies hill. For those of you that know me well, you would know I am not a walker at all. As my mum said if I could park in the bread isle of the supermarket i would, I am not quite that bad but you get the picture.

    Training started several weeks ago and it hasnt been easy! First few weeks involved foot baths, painkillers and very uncomfortable nights sleep. On occasions I have nearly quit and returned home with the weather beating down on me but then the photos of the Skiathos cats have inspired me and kept me motivated to continue

    I can not see this charity fail and the cats having no where to go...Can you support me ??

    The Walk will be the 16th  or 17th of May 2018 starting at 9am at bus stop 26 Koulkanaris. The date will be confirmed on the 14th of May to all pages

    Are you in Skiathos and can give me support enroute, can you sponsor me ? All donations gratefully received

    Lets save the skiathos cats Love Pauline
