A cat who regularly visits Fairfield Hospital is once again helping collect Easter eggs for patients and staff.

Rescue cat Spritzer and its owner Helena Abrahams are aiming to raise 2,000 Easter eggs through their campaign, which began when the tuxedo cat went missing for a day six years ago.

Helena was quick to fit the cat with a tracker and saw that she was a regular visitor to Fairfield Hospital, where she had won over patients and staff.

Heléna has since worked with Morrisons Heywood, Tesco Bury, Poundland Bury and Aldi Bury to raise money for the Easter eggs, before handing them over to local politicians James Daly and Luis McBriar, who present them to the hospital.
