The Faces of Our Organisation


June and her late husband Ian (Cat Daddy) started the GCH rescue 15 years ago, and she has been rescuing and rehoming cats and kittens in need ever since. June has a dedicated team of volunteers, amazing Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages, and several wonderful fosterers  as well as superb support from Voo vets. Starting with two cats Slinky and Rooney, June now has 14 permanent rescue residents as well as 10 cats of her own, and 8 in long-term foster care. The rescue work is 24/7 and it goes on thanks to June’s commitment, expertise, care and love of our feline friends along with fantastic support from our amazing followers. June loves all her babies, but Bramble never leaves her side. 


Lee is a trustee and team admin who deals with adoptions and home checks. She is June's deputy, our vet liaison and she also supervises all the cat foster parents. Lee is very hands on at the rescue helping with cats and kittens; she does most of the vet runs. Lee rescues a  lot of cats and kittens with Steve and is one of our foster mums - she loves kittens! Lee runs Kitty Palace at our events. Her favourite cat here is Lizzie. She also has 4 cats of her own including to GCH ones! 


Brenda is a trustee and team admin who deals with the admin, marketing and the accounts. She also writes the sponsor newsletters, Kitty Mews and the Advent Calendar.  Brenda's favourite cats here are Lily and Lizzie. She has three cats of her own, two from GCH - Poppy and Lilah.


Julie is a team admin and our senior fosterer, she has fostered many cats for GCH and turned some tricky ones around. She is amazing with the most difficult cases and her patience has saved many cats. Julie looks after our long term foster cats Memma 7 Roger. She loves them all as if they were her own. Julie's favourite cats here are Tammy, Gracie and Louis.


Steve is the most experienced member of the team in dealing with tricky cases. He is the one who usually goes out to rescue, collect or deliver a cat with Lee. Steve does the DIY at the rescue and keeps everything shipshape. Steve is now also a foster Dad who is great with troubled cats who need a quiet space. Steve's favourite cats here are Lizzie, Louis and Gracie.


Margaret is a trustee and team admin who advises on our tax affairs and coordinates our fundraising initiatives.  She also runs the car boot sales at Hook Road Arena with June, and is a champion knitter of cat cushions! Margaret is brilliant at helping us organise events, and always steps in when we need her. Margaret's favourite cats are Salzi and Marty. She has a gorgeous GCH cat of her own too, Timmy.
