    If they are a registered charity, ask them, and tell them what you are doing, and ask for their approval (because you should not fundraise for XYZ charity without their permission, which will rarely be withheld). 

    Even if they are not a registered charity, I would still ask them etc. They may already have ideas. 

    If they have a website or FB page, see if there are ideas there. If not, look at the webpages for larger cat charities and see what ideas they have, then adapt them to your situation.

    You should check the law regulations in your local area regarding this issue. Another thing think social media. Photos, goals articles, and promotion.

    Our local cat protection has a Amazon Wish List which allows people to buy items such as toys, food, scratching posts etc they will put requests on their FB page with requests for certain cats.

    They are also doing virtual quizzes are the moment
