Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager “We have had such amazing feedback about the Guernsey Puffin Parade and the next week we have the Auction at St Pierre Park on the 12th September at 630pm.”

“Raffle tickets are still on sale and there are lots of ways you can still help us with this amazing and fun event.”

“From the GSPCA and Autism Guernsey, to the sponsors, the artists, web developers, local businesses and so many more there have been so many that have made this incredible event come together and with the Auction a month away this will be the first time all 60 Puffins will be able to be seen in one place all completed.”

“Last week the GSPCA team Tim Pellet, Neil Hughes and myself with volunteers Deputy Adrian Gabriel, Keith Hounsell, Mike and two fantastic volunteers from Ocorain.”

“Also have to thank many others that have helped with moving the Puffins including a number of Guernsey Freemasons and Matt Hill-Smith one of our awesome GSPCA volunteers with a friend.”

“We really need help now with their movements from the former Pound Shop in Smith Street to the Auction at St Pierre Park Hotel on Tuesday 12th September between 11am and 1pm and anyone that can help please get in touch.”

Mandy Rowlinson at Autism Guernsey Manager said “Puffin Auction tickets are now on sale but there is limited space.”

“If you are unable to attend the puffin auction but would still like to put in a bid, you can find a commission bid form on our website .” 

“Please note that payment must be made before collecting the puffin and all puffins must be collected from St. Pierre Park by noon on Wednesday 13th September.”

“A member of staff will advise you after the auction on the 12th September if you bid has been successful.”

“Thank you to all the artists and volunteers who turned up on Saturday to help touch up the paintwork and clean the puffins, which was a mammoth task.”

“Next Saturday I’ll be there again if anyone wants to join me.”

“Don't forget to buy your raffle tickets for the Puffin Parade which will be drawn on 12th September.”

“We have some marvellous prizes and would like to thank everybody who has either donated a prize for the raffle or for the app or quiz competitions, it's really appreciated.”

“Tickets are still available from St Peters Post OfficeImperial HotelLes CotilsHotel Jerbourg GSPCA, Guernsey SPCA and GSPCA Charity Shop - Smith Street.”

“Thank you to everybody who entered the Puffin Quiz, we had a huge amount of responses and some beautifully decorated envelopes.”

“Unfortunately not everybody got all the answers correct, but for those who did you will be entered into the drawn which will be drawn at the auction on 12th September.”

“You can see the answers on the Guernsey Puffin Parade Facebook Page.”

“We did accept a couple of additional answers to some of the locations such as Co-op instead of Savills etc.”
