Volunteer - Washing Linen

Perhaps turning on the washing machine is your favourite job at home, or you find hanging out the washing is just so relaxing? Well we have a job for you. Our cats are each supplied with a lovely, snuggly, clean bed. These beds usually go to the new home with the kitty but sometimes we do need to wash the bed and this is done by volunteers with a passion for washing machines. We also have to wash the vets gowns and towels used in vet operations.   Of course once washed everything needs to be hung on the washing line, ideal job in the sun.
