The GSPCA would like to extend a HUGE thanks to everyone that has helped at the many events over the last few weeks.  From Guernsey Festival to Chaos, the West to the North Show, Donkey Derby to Vale Earth Fair and of course the dozens of volunteers that helped collected all over Guernsey on Saturday during our flag day.  The money is still being counted and figures of the fantastic effort will be released soon.

We are now calling all volunteers that can help at our Animal Welfare Seafront Sunday on the 9th September to meet up for a briefing before the day.

Lorna Prince (Welfare Manager) and Steve Byrne (GSPCA Manager) from the GSPCA would like to invite all those helping to attend a meeting at the Ship & Crown at 8pm Monday the 3rd September.

We want to ensure as many of our volunteers are aware of the many events, times and locations so the day can run smoothly and everyone can have a fabulous day.

Steve Byrne said 'It has been a really busy few months with the GSPCA attending more fund raising events than ever before and now we have our biggest challenge.'  'Lorna and I will be organising the biggest event ever to be run by the GSPCA and we want it to go really well.'  'We are asking our lovely volunteers to pop along at 8pm at the Ship & Crown so as many people are aware of the many events.'  'I must say a HUGE thank you to everyone that has supported us in our many events, not only the staff and volunteers that have given up their time but also everyone that has donated as without this support we couldn't run the Shelter.'

If you would like to help volunteer please get in touch with Steve Byrne on [email protected]
