THE Ipswich Cats Protection League is on the move, thanks to its new transport.

Former mayor Don Edwards gave the charity £4,000 for a second hand van from the Mayor's Fund last year.

The white van – with CPL's logo on the side – will be used for fundraising events, to pick up cats, take them to new homes, or to and from the vets.

Co-ordinator Judy Mills, said: "We used to have a smaller dark blue van, but that really held the heat in the summer so we couldn't use it for the cats.

"This van is bigger, better and a lot more serviceable.

"We are really grateful for this new boost. We wouldn't have been able to buy the van without this money."

Mr Edwards said: "I have always loved cats so it was an obvious choice as they are one of my favourite animals. My wife and I have had a cat for 40-odd years on and off, and this is a very worthy cause.

"There is a good team working at the Ipswich Cats Protection League and they do a great job."
