Yesterday a team of 7 staff from Specsavers spent the day helping at the GSPCA.

The staff were the second group from Specsavers to help this year at the Animal Shelter in St Andrews.

The group arrived at 9am and had a quick induction, group picture and were then quickly set to work around the site.

The 7 Specsavers staff were split around the site and helped with everything from walking dogs to cleaning cats, scrubbing hedgehog pens to helping sort donations.

After a full day of helping the team were given a tour and each given a certificate of thanks for helping at the GSPCA.

Yvonne Chauvel Senior Animal Care Assistant said "We had another really lovely group of staff from Specsavers helping at the GSPCA yesterday."

"They were a great help and thank you from all of the team for your help."

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "We are always so grateful when approached from local groups and businesses that want to help at the GSPCA."

"The 7 staff from Specsavers were fantastic and that makes 28 of their team have already helped this year."

"Everyone from Specsavers seemed to really enjoy themselves and also got to learn so much of what we do and how much work goes on behind the scenes."

"So may people don't realise that we operate 24 hours a day 7 days a week, that we help over 3000 animals a year and that it costs £2000 a day to run the Shelter and all this without the new much needed multi purpose animal welfare building we are constructing which is costing £1.3 million replacing 5 very old buildings."

"There are so many ways businesses can help from time to supporting our new build, advertising in our quarterly newsletter to sponsoring a kennel."

"A huge thank you to Abi Johnson, Will Le Maitre, Mary Petley, Jess Heys, Hannah Reid, Fay Dovey & Athena Chan for all of their hard work and to Specsavers for allowing the team to come and help."
