On Monday 30th July 8 passengers from the cruise ship Crstal Serenity were greeted by GSPCA staff members Tim Pellett and Rual Gomez.

The Voluntourists who were on their holidays from around the world arrived at the Shelter just after 9am and had a short induction and were then sent to help the staff and care for the many animals at the GSPCA.

Each received a gift of a GSPCA t-shirt to wear for their half day volunteering caring for the many animals at the GSPCA.

As with the previous groups we have had this year all 8 had an extremely enjoyable time and before they left were given a behind the scenes guided tour where they met the many reptiles and found out about the history of the Shelter and Guernsey.

The GSPCA has been running voluntourist days since 2014 with the Crystal Cruises.

The group before left they were presented with a thank you certificate for all of their help.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "Once again we really enjoyed having all of the Voluntourists Faye Clements, Florence Ashman, Ieuan Ashman, Steve Duncan, Patricia Beck, Valentina Phillips, Florencia Phillips & Ellie Pestell from the Crystal Serenity last Monday."

"They all had a wonderful time and it was a pleasure to meet them all, and from all of the team at the GSPCA thank you to all 8 for their help with cleaning and caring for the animals."

"There are many ways to get involved at the GSPCA and we always love to hear from those wanting to volunteer at the Shelter."

“On Monday 3rd September we have our next volunteer induction which is open to anyone interested in helping out at the GSPCA.”
