For the third year the GSPCA has tickets for the Channel Islands Christmas Lottery on sale at the Animal Shelter reception desk.

The 2014 tickets which are only £2 each are on sale and each have two numbers on and a scratch card section.

Jeremy the Lop Eared Bunny modeling the tickets pictured is looking for a new home and is just one of the many animals you would help by purchasing your tickets from the Animal Shelter.

Profits from the lottery, which is due to be drawn on 18th December 2014.

From the profits from the 2012 draw, which are shared in proportion to the number of tickets sold in each island, more than £190,000 was given to Guernsey charitable groups and more than £420,000 to Jersey groups.  Last year over £200,000 was raised in Guernsey, which helped 33 local organisations fund projects and services around the island for the benefit of the local community.

The Animal Shelter was one of the fortunate charities to receive part of the proceeds to help with kennel flooring at the Shelter.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "We are extremely grateful to the Christmas Lottery who last year provided us with the money towards repairing our kennel flooring."

"We are always trying to raise funds for the Shelter to help the many animals that come through our doors every year and to help with this once again we are selling the Christmas Lottery Tickets at the GSPCA Animal Shelter in St Andrews."

"Our reception is open Monday to Saturday 9am to 5pm and during half term we have guided tours at the Shelter so if you are looking for your tickets please pop in to the GSPCA and help animals at the same time."

As well as the rising first prize, which started at £300,000 and is currently £410,000, there will be a second prize of £50,000, a third prize of £25,000, 50 fourth prizes of £500. 

The scratch card game prizes ranging from £2 to £5,000.
