For the second year the GSPCA has tickets for the Channel Islands Christmas Lottery on sale at the Animal Shelter reception desk.

The new tickets which are only £2 each are on sale and each have two numbers on and a scratch card section.

Stilton the Lop Eared Bunny modeling the tickets pictured is looking for a new home and is just one of the many animals you would help by purchasing your tickets from the Animal Shelter.

Profits from the lottery, which is due to be drawn on 19th December 2013 at Beau Sejour Leisure Centre, will be shared between the charity associations in Guernsey and Jersey.

From the profits from the 2012 draw, which are shared in proportion to the number of tickets sold in each island, more than £190,000 has been given to Guernsey charitable groups and more than £420,000 to Jersey groups.

The Animal Shelter was one of the fortunate charities to receive part of the proceeds which enabled the GSPCA to purchase 5 additional Intensive Care Units which have helped save countless lives this year.  To see the full story please click here.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said 'We are extremely grateful to the Christmas Lottery who last year provided us with the money to enable us to purchase 5 additional much needed Intensive Care Units.'

'We are always trying to raise funds for the Shelter to help the 2000+ animals that come through our doors every year and to help with this once again we are selling the Christmas Lottery Tickets at the GSPCA Animal Shelter in St Andrews.'

'Our reception is open Monday to Saturday 9am to 5pm and during half term we have the Art Exhibition at the Shelter so if you are looking for your tickets please pop in to the GSPCA and help animals at the same time.'

Malcolm Woodhams from the Association of Guernsey Charities said 'Local charities are always extremely grateful to everyone who helps to make the Christmas lottery a great success by supporting the traditional draw.'

As well as the rising first prize, which starts at £300,000, there will be a second prize of £50,000, a third prize of £25,000, 45 fourth prizes of £500. 

The scratch card game prizes ranging from £2 to £5,000.
