It is customary for each intake of probationary student officers to arrange a charity event to raise money for a charity of their choosing. This is not compulsory but is embraced by most Student Officer Intakes as a way to go out into the community that they are preparing to ultimately Police.

Guernsey Police Student Officers Class 1 of 2014 have chosen the GSPCA as their charity of choice.

Their chosen event is a half island walk.  Anyone who wishes to join them for any part of the walk is more than welcome, and your furry friends are welcome too. 

Our Civil Protection Colleagues will be at each check point wearing Purple GSPCA bibs and with GSPCA buckets if you wish to make a kind donation to support the group.

Alternatively, please use the link below to make an online donation.  Thank You.
