"Emilia Balla-Davis (age 11), a pupil of Redland Green School used the recent North Bristol Art Trail weekend to raise money for The Moggery Cat & Kitten Rehoming Centre, Bishopston. Exhibiting some of her own work for sale alongside her father, Paul Davis (a North Bristol Artist Member), she made her own collection boxes and documents promoting the good work of The Moggery. Emilia recently adopted her cat, an 8-year old male called "Gillette" from them (pictured enjoying a special cat-milk from his own mini-mug!) and was inspired to raised money as her Great Grandfather had also adopted from them. His male cat was called "Roddy" (short for Roderigo!) a cool cat name indeed and kept him company for around 14 years. When her Great Grandfather had to go into a care home, she adopted his cat Roddy and unfortunately, Roddy had a had to be put to sleep soon after due to an undiagnosed tumour and her Grandfather also passed away during the summer. So raising money to help other cats became an important focus. After a successful weekend of collecting during the Art Trail, Emilia raised a fantastic £91.07 and this was delivered to Christine the founder of The Moggery on Saturday 2nd December. Christine told Emilia that she was very grateful for the donation and Emilia is pictured in "Official" Moggery uniform with an 8 week old kitten called "Rudolph" who will benefit from food and treats bought thanks to her amazing fund raising efforts.
