A huge thank you to Rachele Nolan for nearly 4 months of 5 days a week volunteering at the GSPCA who flies home to South Africa

Submitted by Steve on 00:10, 22nd Jun, 2017 | 0

All of the team are really going to miss Rachele Nolan who has been an amazing part of the team for the last 4 months.

Since March this year Rachele has been helping all day Monday to Friday and even a few weekends at the GSPCA.

Rachele has been visiting family here in Guernsey but during her visit she wanted to volunteer out at the Animal Shelter so after her induction she started back in March and ever since has been a huge help to the team and hundreds of animals in our care.
