Treasurer's Report
Janet Jones (Treasurer) went through the accounts for 2018.  She also had the detailed accounts if anyone wanted to look at them.

Money this year had been raised from a number of sources, the Charity Shops, direct donations through Paypal or into the various bank accounts, cash donations and Easy Fundraising.

Income and Donations received this year covered our expenses.
Total Income-                       65166.16 euro
Total expenditure-                         59264.70 euro

Expenditure was made up as follows:-
Total paid to vets                     59014.70 euro.
 (This figure is 12069.40 euro more than in 2017)

Darcy (Dog) Hip replacement in Patras   250 euros

There were a number of people who were thanked for their help with raising money.  The list of names is at the end of these minutes.

Neutering 
Catherine Candy presented the neutering numbers for 2018

Over 800 animals were neutered in 2018,  this figure includes 100+ neutered by the volunteer vet.

The charity was lucky enough to have 1 Volunteer vet during 2018.





Any Other Business/questions
Due to the resignation of Sheila Steven, there was a place on the committee available.

Jean Baker was nominated by Sheila Steven and seconded by Bell Noon

Vikki Evans suggested villa owners and reps were contacted with a view to acquiring any items left behind which could be sold at the bazaars and in the shop.

New member Annya McKenzie suggested we needed to advertise more, and has agreed to take over the updates to our website, which has been neglected over the last few years.

Jean Baker highlighted that we need to increase our membership to get some new blood involved with the charity.

Lynda Thompson advised a transport of adoptees from Zakynthos has managed to get to UK. Unfortunately the transport we used in 2018 for adoptions was stopped in January by Port Police in Patra  due to paperwork irregularities. KATs did not have any animals on this transport. The animals from the stopped transport are in various foster homes on Zakynthos until these irregularities are cleared up. The lawyer from KAAN (Kefalonia Animal Aid Network) is getting involved with the case, as animals from this association were on the transport in question.

Annya McKenzie also suggested we ask Spiridoula if it would be possible to contact the vet school in Thessoloniki re volunteer vets, who may have the relevant paperwork to volunteer here on Kefalonia.

Roger Steven is doing a sponsored bike ride of the Aegean Islands in April (weather permitting) on our behalf and we promised to publicise everywhere.
Everyone was thanked for attending and also Happiness Restaurant for the use of their premises and continued support.

That would be much appreciated by the charity Maik. The islands are Andros, Tinos, Mykonos, Syros, Kythnos and Kea. The biggest island is Andros and could be 100 kms, but less on the other islands, so at a guess, maybe 400 to 500 kms.

Thanks Tony, I do a marathon ride every 5 years. Last time was Tirana to Kefalonia and before that 700 kms around the Peloponissis in 7 days. This one needs some planning, because it will be a ferry every day to the next island. No, not floats on the bike!

Your Albania tour was particularly distinguished by some very fine pics. Hadn't realised that was five years ago. Time flying very fast!

First time we went to Andros was in the eighties (nineteen eighties, not our eighties  ;)), bit of a trek getting to Rafina then spent three hours on a tiny ferry same as the Lixouri-Argostoli ferries - even the (very basic) snack bar was closed. Well, it was at some ungodly hour in the morning. Bum was well numb by time we reached Gavrio. Had a great holiday in Batsi and went back a few years later - ferry was one of the huge, new, 'floating hotels'. Quite disappointed, actually. Didn't stop us going back a third time, though!  Even in April I think you'll find ferries are a lot more frequent than on Kef, we managed a bit of island hopping quite easily (once we figured out which ferry was going where). Have fun!!

Search-and-rescue operation underway for passenger that fell overboard from ferry

A search and rescue operation involving a Navy helicopter and the fishing boat was underway in the sea region between the Aegean islands of Andros and Tinos on Wednesday to locate a person that fell off the passenger-car ferry "Theologos".

The ferry has continued its scheduled journey to the island of Mykonos.

The ride will start 13th April, but could be delayed if the weather is wet.

How goes it, Roger? If we don't hear from you we'll assume... you survived the ferry crossing and are busy pedalling.
