The cat-loving Mayor of Oldham Ginny Alexander is determined to stay warm this winter - and help support a local charity.

Ginny, pictured in the specially-logo'd fleece top she bought from the Oldham Cats Rescue Centre, said: “The charity  do great work.

"They are seeking donations so they can buy cat houses for the stray cats for the winter.

“They also sell beautiful fleeces which can be ordered through Oldham Cats. I bought one and love it.”

To make a donation or buy a fleece contact Ellen Haigh via email at: or go to the Oldham Cats Fund Raising Page on Facebook.

All monies go to help the cats and the rescue centre.
