Yesterday at the GSPCA we welcomed a group of 7 Lloyds Banking Group staff at the Shelter.

Mark Holiday, Hilary Smart, Michelle Drysdale, Alison Green, Debbie Townsend, Jay Langlois and Jo Luff arrived just before 9am and after a short induction were set to work.

From helping with the grounds work to cleaning out the hedgehogs, walking the dogs to cleaning the cats the team of staff were keen and enthusiastic despite the hot humid weather.

With nearly four acres of land and many fences, wooden panels and hutches once the wood had dried out many set to help repainting and treating them whilst others helped the GSPCA team care for the animals.

At the end of the day the GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne took the group on a tour of the facilities and talked about the work of the Shelter and the plans for the future.

After the tour and before the group left for the day all were thanked and given certificates as a way of gratitude for all of their help and hard work and also so the group could remember their time at the Shelter.

The whole group enjoyed their time and gave some wonderful feedback about the work the GSPCA carry out and the caring team at the Shelter.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "The team of Lloyds Banking Group staff were a fantastic help yesterday and all seemed to really enjoy their day."

"With nearly 4 acres at the GSPCA and over 200 animals on site at any time there is always plenty to do, and we really appreciate the time that the Lloyds staff gave yesterday."

"It was a really hot and muggy day but everyone got stuck in at the Animal Shelter and at the end of the day we showed the group behind the scenes and talked about the work that we do."

"Next Wednesday we have a second group from the Lloyds Banking Group who are not only helping at the GSPCA HQ but also on our stall at the West Show, and if you see any giant animals walking about it may just be one of the volunteers."

"We always love to hear from businesses wanting to support the Animal Shelter from volunteering to sponsorship."

"With only 5 weeks to go until our Animal Welfare Seafront Sunday if you or your business would like to join in with our Giant Animal Mascot It's A Knockout Race raising funds for ourselves and Help a Guernsey Child then we would love to hear from you."

"A huge thank you to all the Lloyds Banking Group staff that helped yesterday it was much appreciated."

Mark Holiday Lloyds Banking Group Manager said "Thank you once again for yesterday, we all thoroughly enjoyed our day and also found it very interesting and illuminating."

"I had never appreciated the sheer scope of the work that the GSPCA do."

"Please also thank your team for us, they were all very patient and generous with their time."

"The energy, commitment and passion of the whole team at the GSPCA is truly inspiring!"
