Once again we will be holding a Giant Animal Mascot event but this year there are a big twist.

This is open to mascots and individuals prepared to dress as an animal and play a fun football game with a rather over sized ball. 

We are asking businesses, pubs, individuals or anyone as a team of 5 or an individual and we can make extra teams on the day.

Don't worry about what to wear we will provide the Giant Animal Mascot suit and have over 70 available.

To join in the our giant animal 5-a-side football game in Guernsey we are asking you to raise funds for the Shelter, ideally a minimum of £15 per person.

All the money raised will go towards helping animals in Guernsey.

For businesses wanting to join in we will feature in our next newsletter, on our website and you can put a banner up on the day.

We are welcoming children to dress up in their own suits and also have a game through the day for a donation.

There are lots of events happening during the Animal Welfare Seafront Sunday from a fun dog show, arts and crafts stalls, live music kids games, food stalls and much more

This is the seventh year the event has taken place and in previous years we have seen Bernard, Daniel the Island FM Donkey and Roary the GFC Lion and over 90 other competitors.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "We have another great line up for the Animal Welfare Seafront Sunday on the 20th May."

"With our big day on the 20th May we are asking for teams or individuals to sign up to dress as a giant animal or character to play a fun 5-a-side football game."

"All the funds raised will help animals in Guernsey."

"It's not a normal game as the ball may well big a little bigger than normal."

"All we ask is a minimum donation of £15 per player, we provide the costume and the the fun starts at 2pm on the 20th."

"Game lengths will depend on numbers and our very own Bernard the GSPCA dog will be in goal for any penalty shoot outs."

"Please do get in touch for more information or check out the details online."
