This year’s Hel(l)vetia Challenge will be held on 27th August and the GSPCA really need your support by donating to


Or call 01481 257261, at the Shelter or by post GSPCA, Rue des Truchots, St Andrews, Guernsey, GY6 8UD. Cheques make payable to ‘GSPCA’ please.

Steve Byrne, Ben Lowndes and possible others will be taking on this mini triathlon and we need your donations to support our #GSPCACoronavirusCrisisAppeal

Now, more than ever, the GSPCA needs your support. The Hel(l)vetia Challenge is an excellent opportunity to raise funds, whilst having fun and raising team spirits as we exit lockdown.

Last year GSPCA team members Steve, Seb, Gemma and Ben took part and to see more please visit -

For those who haven’t taken part in the Challenge before, the spirit of the Hel(l)vetia Challenge is to be accessible to as broad a range of participants as possible (from light joggers to keen triathletes). Participants do not need to take part in all three legs (swim, cycle, run) but can choose to share laps with team mates, rather than do all three.

If you’re organisation would like to participate or simply find out more, then please reach out to [email protected] enter a team or if you would like to join a GSPCA team please email [email protected]

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “Last year myself, Seb, Gemma and Ben took part in the Hel(l)vetia Challenge.”

“It was very tiring, but we had great fun raising funds for the GSPCA.”

“Ben and I will be taking part once again hopefully with others and to donate and support our #GSPCACoronavirusCrisisAppeal please visit .”

“For anyone wanting to take part in the Hel(l)vetia Challenge we have GSPCA running vets we can supply and you can easily set up an online donation page by going to .”

“We are hoping to take part at 3pm and it would be great to so a big crowd for all those taking part next Thursday.”

“Coronavirus has impacted us all and raising the funds to run the GSPCA is incredibly hard and without public support we couldn’t care for the 1000’s of animals at the Shelter and provide our 24/7 service.”

“You can create your own team or if you would like to join a GSPCA team please get in touch.”

“We have GSPCA vests we can issue to those wanting to get involved and raise funds the many animals in our care.”

“Also you can download a sponsor form by going to .”

“Every day is a real struggle to raise the funds to run the GSPCA during these difficult days.”

“For those wanting to donate to our #GSPCACoronavirusCrisisAppeal you can by calling 01481 257261, by post, at the Shelter or online via our web page .”
