On Saturday night the GSPCA held a Masquerade Ball at the Farmhouse with over 100 guests.

The evening was supported by the Farmhouse and Save the Date and the GSPCA are hugely grateful to all involved and supported what was an amazing evening.

As guests arrived Peter and Suzy Rose were on hand at the front of the Farmhouse to take group pictures of the great looking guests.

Guests then received a welcome drink and were entertained by Lydia Pugh singing whilst playing the keyboard and card tricks were performed by her partner Michael Sullivan.

The tables were decorated by Annette Gent from Save the Date who made the room very special for an evening to raise funds for the GSPCA.

When the guests took their seats three lucky surprise winners found they had won a bottle of bubbly and all were welcomed with a favour thanks to Save the Date which had a free raffle ticket for another bubbly bottle winner.

The meals from the Farmhouse were outstanding and all enjoyed wonderful service in a warm and friendly atmosphere.

The evening was hosted by Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager who took the stage to auction two David Shepherd autographed prints, award prizes and also a surprise awards section which included -

Sarah Ozanne receiving a Special Commendation for Hoglet Hand Rearing

Seb Goman receiving a Special Commendation for Outstanding Dog Care

Suzy Rose receiving a Special Commendation for a Goat Rescue at the Farmhouse

Peter Rose receiving a Special Commendation for Being Olaf and Dog Show Judge at the 2015 GSPCA Animal Welfare Seafront Sunday

Guy Hardill receiving a Special Commendation for Being Our Mascot Bernard at the GSPCA Animal Welfare Seafront Sunday

Annette Gent receiving a Special Commendation for an outstanding decorated room for the GSPCA Masquerade Ball 2016 at the GSPCA

Claire & Shirley Ozanne receiving a Special Commendation for outstanding flowers from the Buttonhole Flower Shop

Michelle Champion receiving a Special Commendation for an amazing pigeon rescue up a chimney & outstanding customer care

Jo Fox receiving a Special Commendation for putting up with Steve Byrne

The awards not also celebrated the great work so many do to help us at the GSPCA and the many animals in our care but also thanked Steve's fiance who does so much to support the GSPCA Manager with the many hours of work carried out.

Before the dessert Lydia Pugh and then Michael Sullivan each performed a song from Les Miserables which captivated the whole room.

The raffle was then held and Lydia helped select the many winners and it was hugely supported by many local businesses some including Outdoor Guernsey, Becky Rowe, Feel Unique, The Farmhouse, Sure, Save the Date, All Beauty, Boots, Alladins Cave, Quex Gardens, Co-op, Joules, Buttonhole Flower Shop, Peninsula and many other fantastic supporters and we must thank them all for the wonderful prizes.

After dessert and coffee local band Youthe played and all danced the night away which helped raise over £3000 for the GSPCA and we must say a huge thank you to all involved.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "What an amazing night we all had at the GSPCA Masquerade Ball at the wonderful Farmhouse on Saturday which was supported by Save the Date who did an amazing job decorating the room."

"Including all that came there are 200 thank you's we must say for helping make a wonderful night raising over £3000 for the animals at the GSPCA."

"A very special thank you must go to Annette from Save the Date and to the Farmhouse for an awesome venue, wonderful service and amazing food."

"We had lots of surprises from the moment guests took their seats and while our very own Geoff George was at the Guernsey Press Pride of Guernsey Awards we held our very own mini Awards to thank many of the supporters, volunteers and staff at the Ball."

"The entertainment was all very special with Lydia Pugh, Michael Sullivan and Youthe."

"There is another Ball this month in aid of the GSPCA being run by Sidney's Sponsored Events with a Halloween theme and if you would like one of the last two tables please call Corinne on 07911720469 or email her [email protected]."
