Towel appeal at the GSPCA

Submitted by Steve on 12:51, 4th Sep, 2020 | 0

With over 300 animals in our care we are extremely busy at the GSPCA and are appealing for blankets and especially towels to help to provide them with bedding, to help with handling and drying off.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "We use hundreds of towels and blankets every day at the GSPCA and our 4 laundry machines are on around the clock."

"As towels and blankets are used they can get torn by the animals or for those used in isolation or quarantine areas may have to be disposed of for medical reasons."

Huge thanks to all that supported the Bailiwick Big Day Out

Submitted by Steve on 15:42, 19th Aug, 2020 | 0

On Sunday 100’s of islanders celebrated the end of lockdown for the whole Bailiwick, and the #guernseytogether spirit.

On Sunday there was a FREE family friendly event (with donations to charity) to showcase what an array of fantastic talent and produce we have in Guernsey.

The organisers kindly supported a number of local charities including the GSPCA and it was lovely to see everyone at Government House.

The GSPCA was there with our stall promoting our work and raising much needed funds. An amazing £880 was raised and a lot of fun was had.
