Throughout March, Curves Guernsey supported local charities by collecting food for their annual Curves Local Charity Drive! All food/toiletries collected were donated to GSPCA, The Womens Refuge & the Guernsey Welfare Service and today all of the wonderful food for the GSPCA was dropped into the Shelter.

Designed especially for women, Curves located at Admiral Park waived its service fee for new members during March in return for pet food, non-perishable food & toiletries. The total amount being donated to the GSPCA, Womens Refuge & Guernsey Welfare Service in recognition of the wonderful work they do in the community. Existing members were also encouraged to donate to these worthwhile charities.

Becky Chandler, Manager of Curves Guernsey, said: "Collecting these donations during the Annual Curves Local Charity Drive is something which unites the Curves community globally and we're delighted to champion these charities, whose goals of supporting and strengthening people in the local community match Curves’ core values extremely well.”

Curves have been collecting and donating to charity during March for over 2 years and has so far collected in excess of 3000kg.

Becky says “The Local Charity Drive is a vital part of our community program that fits perfectly with the Curves philosophy of promoting positive health and creating a community for “real women”.  We look forward to many years of giving back to the community through deserving charities such as these.”

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "We are so pleased that Curves Guernsey have chosen the Animal Shelter once again as part of this food collection drive and it was fantastic to receive all of the animal food and treats today ."

"We have 200 to 300 animals and birds at the GSPCA in our care at any one time and every little helps feed these many hungry mouths."

"This is the second year Curves Guernsey have supported the GSPCA Animal Shelter and our shelves our now bulging with all of the wonderful donations."

"A huge thanks to Becky and all at Guernsey Curves and it's fantastic what they have done for ourselves, The Womens Refuge & the Guernsey Welfare Service through their annual Curves Local Charity Drive."
