Release date: April 04, 2021


Sprinkle the cat with some of the Easter eggs donated to Fairfield Hospital

A cat who lives on the grounds of Fairfield Hospital has collected over 1,000 Easter eggs for the hospital’s patients and staff.

The rescue cat Spritzer, 11, has become a firm favorite at the hospital, where she spends her days visiting patients in the psychiatric ward and documenting her adventures on social media.

After the owner Heléna Abrahams went missing one day five years ago, she led the “Gizmo’s Legacy” campaign for local authorities to microchip all cats killed or injured on the streets. Spatter was found to be in the psychiatric ward Visited Fairfield, and staff and patients love her alike.

Heléna has even been contacted by parents of sick children who showed Spritzer’s photo next to their beds.

For some years now, Heléna and Spritzer have been collecting the kitten’s fame to collect Easter eggs for the hospital. This year they are collecting more eggs than ever before.

Spritzer, supported by Morrisons Heywood, Tesco Bury, and Poundland Bury, even had donations from its supporters in Australia.

A thousand chocolate eggs were rushed to the hospital on Thursday (April 1) with MP James Daly and members of Gizmo’s Legacy, the remainder were delivered to the mental health department by Heléna and Spritzer on Friday (April 2).

Spritzer has published two books about her adventures, and there are plans for two more.
