Watch out for the GSPCA at Waitrose and support us with your green tokens this October.

Today is World Animal Day and this month we are also lucky enough to be nominated for the green token Community Matters box at the Waitrose stores in Admiral Park and the Rohais.

By placing a token in the Community Matters box at your local branch you’re helping your community and if you choose the slot for the GSPCA helping animals in Guernsey.

The scheme across the Waitrose stores was launched in 2008 and has donated £14 million to local charities chosen by the public. At the end of your shop in branch at a Waitrose store, you’ll receive a token to place in a box of the good cause you’d most like to support.  The more tokens a cause gets, the bigger the donation they receive.

Each month every Waitrose branch donates £1,000 (£500 in Convenience shops) between 3 local good causes that you the public choose.

We were lucky enough to have been in both stores earlier this year which raised over £700 which at the GSPCA we are hugely grateful for. also shares a donation of £25,000 between 3 national causes. After checkout, you will be asked to vote for one of the national causes they are supporting. Each cause will receive a share according to the number of votes - just as they do in their branches.

So please if you are popping in Waitrose Admiral Park or the Rohais store support and help animals in Guernsey by popping your green token in the slot.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "Both Waitrose stores have helped us in many ways at the GSPCA from staff volunteering to raffle prizes and we are extremely grateful for all of their support."

"The team at the Waitrose Rohais store did so much to help Olivia the turtle and we want to thank all at Waitrose for helping raise funds for the GSPCA during our 144th anniversary earlier this year and for being involved with Community Matters in both stores this month as we have had more animals than we have ever seen this summer."

"Today is World Animal Day and with over 500 in our care at the GSPCA it is through the support of companies like Waitrose that we are able to help so many animals in need."
