This competition was thought up by one of our team Emma Topley to help raise funds for the many animals in our care and will be judged by our amazing artist and award winning staff member Beckie Bailey.

Emma Topley GSPCA Staff Member said “This is a great way we can all support the Shelter while many have to stay safe at home.”

“We’ve got many rainbows around the GSPCA sharing the #StaySafe message and we wanted to run an event that everyone can get involved with young and old and we really don’t mind how artistic they are, you just need to include the rainbow and at least one animal which could be your pets or anything really, it is just a bit of fun.”

Beckie Bailey GSPCA Staff Member said “I’m really looking forward seeing all the entries with rainbows and animals.”

“This is a great way to get all the family involved and you can enter as many entries as you like but it is £5 minimum entry donation and every penny will help the many animals in our care and our 24 hour work.”

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager “What a great competition Emma has created to raise funds and spread the #StaySafe #GuernseyTogether and #ShareTheRainbow message.”

“We are really missing all the events we would be attending and organising which not only raise essential funds, but also show case and promote our work.”

“Earlier this week we launched our #GSPCACoronavirusCrisisAppeal and we have had an incredible response and can’t thank everyone enough that has donated so far, but with no events and only one boarding cat in our care we are doing all we can to raise the £2000 needed to run the Shelter each day.”

“We battle on with our essential work rescuing animals, rehabilitating wildlife and so much more but without public support we cannot achieve so much.”

“Having children at home myself and other family members indoors this is a great way to have a bit of show and also help raise funds for the animals in our care with some great prizes for the winner and runner up in each category.”

"On a trip out with the children yesterday on our bikes for our exercise time we counted an amaing 187 rainbows and we are hoping our competition wil help add many more around the islands or from anywhere across the world."

“If you aren’t feeling arty then you can still donate to our #GSPCACoronavirusCrisisAppeal by calling 01481 257261 or online .”

“Good luck one and all and we can’t wait to see your entries.”
