On Good Friday and Easter Saturday the GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne with the Easter Bunny held two fun events for groups of children with their parents.

With over 35 children taking part over the two days the families got to see behind the scenes at the GSPCA as well as learning all about rabbits and their care.

Each child on arrival received a Treasure Hunt bunny sheet, a lollipop, GSPCA sticker and pen.  They then had a picture with the Easter Bunny at the front of the Shelter before being shown around the site in St Andrews.

As well as seeing the 15 rabbits in the care of the GSPCA everyone also got to see Olivia the loggerhead turtle and Bonnie the grey seal pup through the mirrored door to her pools.

After the tour the answers were given and in both groups all the children did so well they each got an Easter Egg.

Then the Easter Egg Hunts took place. The children were given the rules and had to search inside for a selection of eggs. For each egg they won a prize and every child received 6 prizes as well as their Easter Egg.

With over £300 raised for the animals every family gave lovely feedback about how much they enjoyed their tour and the fun games to win the prizes.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "We all had a great time on Good Friday and Easter Saturday showing the families around the GSPCA, teaching them all about rabbits and I think the real surprise and highlight was having the chance to see Olivia the loggerhead turtle and Bonnie the grey seal pup."

"The Easter Bunny helped taking everyone around the Shelter and with the Easter Egg Hunt games and it was wonderful to see the children enjoy themselves so such while raising funds for the animals in our care."

"A huge thank you to all that supported and we have more tours and similar events coming up later this year."

"We also have our biggest event of the year being our Animal Welfare Seafront Sunday taking place on the 15th May."

Some of the feedback included -

"We've had so much fun, thank you"

"That was amazing thank you so much."

"We really enjoyed that and thank you for showing us Olivia and Bonnie."

"Thank you, we really enjoyed it keep up the good work."
