On Friday of last week the team at the GSPCA were over joyed to welcome the third of three groups of staff from Northern Trust who gave their day to help the team at the Animal Shelter in St Andrews.

Staff from Northern Trust have a scheme called Northern Trust Community Partners where staff get the chance to help in the community and earlier this year the GSPCA had a group of 10 and another of 11 help out around the Shelter and on Friday the largest of the three groups arrived with 17 pairs of hands.

Once again the staff from Northern Trust arrived at 9am where they received a quick induction with GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne before they were set to work around the site in St Andrews.

The group helped with all sorts of jobs and tasks, many caring for the animals and cleaning around the site whilst others helped out getting fund raising items ready for the up coming events like the Animal Welfare Seafront Sunday which takes place on the 14th September.

With a total number of 38 staff and 76 hands having helped from Northern Trust everyone at the GSPCA would like to say a massive thank you to all from Northern Trust for all their help and hard work.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "To all that helped from Northern Trust and to their Directors we must say a huge thank you from all the team and animals at the GSPCA."

"All of the team at the GSPCA really enjoyed working with each and every group from Northern Trust and we are extremely grateful for all of their help, hard work and support they gave."

"The Northern Trust staff were all fantastic and we really hope that we will see many of them at our upcoming events, especially the Animal Welfare Seafront Sunday where they can see many of the games they helped put together and decorate."

"I must say a special thank you to Samantha Truffitt from Northern Trust who has helped organise all of the groups and days."

Once again at the end of the day those helping were awarded with certificates of appreciation and given the full guided tour behind the scenes at the Animal Shelter to see everything from a Barn Owl to the ferrets in need of homes.

From all at the GSPCA a huge thank you to all at Northern Trust and especially Danni Cluett, Jodie Martel, Charlotte Le Guilcher, Lucy Le Page, Lynsey Harris, Annette Gerard, Bryony Ockleford, Karen Brehaut, Samantha Truffitt, Shane Loveridge, Jane Le Tissier, Nikki Sandrey, Paul Stephen, Renee Mclver, David Clerey, Charlotte Le Cras and Sam Bennalick who all did so much on Friday.
