All the money raised will go towards helping animals in Guernsey.

For businesses wanting to join in we will feature in our next newsletter, on our website and you can put a banner up on the day.

This is the sixth year the event has taken place and in previous years we have seen Bernard, Daniel the Island FM Donkey and Roary the GFC Lion and over 90 other competitors.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "This year we have a BIG change to announce for the fun Animal Mascot event."

"With 4 months to go before our big day we are asking for teams or individuals to sign up to dress as a giant animal or character to play a fun 5-a-side football game."

"All the funds raised will help animals in Guernsey."

"It's not a normal game as the ball may well big a little bigger than normal."

"All we ask is a minimum donation of £15 per player, we provide the costume and the the fun starts at 2pm on the 28th."

"Game lengths will depend on numbers and our very own Bernard the GSPCA dog will be in goal for any penalty shoot outs."

"Please do get in touch for more information or check out the details online."
