Our German affiliate "Cologne Cats" under the direction of Manfred Jung were very busy over the Christmas Holiday handing over a cheque for 2000 Euros from money raised at their "Sound of The Sixties" nights at the Hard Rock Cafe in Cologne. The photos show the hard work put by the guys and girls over there including the now Famous Santa  Harley Davidson  Run  through the streets of Cologne.

Manfred sent us this link to Horst Fascher's (Founder of the Star Club- Hamburg) site.

On the site is a never before heard track of the Beatles backing Horst for his rendition of "Hallelujah I Love her so". 

Horst is a friend of Manfred's and he tells us he is planning to visit Cats for our 20th birthday celebrations later this year, so we look forward to meeting him and all our German friends.
