A huge thanks from all at the GSPCA to those that supported the GSPCA Quiz Night at the Cock and Bull which took place last week.

Originally planned for March earlier this year it sadly had to be postponed due to lock down and Covid-19.

Thankfully due to our safe Bailiwick bubble and #GuernseyTogether spirit organisors and GSPCA team members Beckie Bailey and Nicolle Morgan were able to reschedule and run what was a fabulous evening.
