The founder of a Wisbech cat rescue centre has thanked the charity’s generous donors after inspiring her through a lengthy health battle.

Tracy Reeve, who set up Cat Haven 27 years ago, almost died from a brain abscess last April.
She is still recovering, as the illness left her paralysed down one side, but she said the kindness and support of the public helped her pull through.
She said: “The public have been wonderful to me throughout my rescue career and have overwhelmed me throughout my recovery.”
Tracy also paid thanks to the Wisbech Asda store, which recently donated £200 to the charity. This brings the total raised by the supermarket this year in aid of the haven to £800 – and it also provides an in-store cat food donation box for the cause.
The charity is currently looking after 60 unrehomeable cats, so any donations of cat food or items to sell in its shop, in Wisbech Market Place, are gratefully received.
