All we want for Christmas is a Charity Shop

Submitted by GSPCA on 13:49, 19th Dec, 2011 | 0

After a tremendous response to an appeal for bric-a-brac for our Christmas Fayre we held this weekend the GSPCA is now appealing for help to open a Charity Shop for the Animal Shelter.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager and two volunteers have been looking at premises around the island to open a shop to raise funds for the Shelter and the welfare work that we do.

Today is our Christmas Fayre 11am – 330pm.

We would like to thank everyone for their kind donations of bric-a-brac, raffle prizes, items for the tombola and cakes so far but please pop any more in today if you get a chance.

Today we will have lots of goodies on sale for both you and your pet and no matter the weather the day will go ahead.

Santa will be there as well as a Bernard our doggie mascot who got very wet last night in town giving out lolly pops.

If the weather is kind you may well get to see one of Santas friendly donkeys.

Last night was our second of three late night shopping evenings in St Peter Port.

With a very wet and windy evening the staff and Bernard our mascot braved the elements and not only helped raise funds for the Animal Shelter but also brought smiles to lots of peoples faces by Bernard giving out lolly pops and big doggie hugs.

We would like to thank all that supported and helped and we will be out next Thursday with our stall and will also be at Oatlands late night shopping on Wednesday so please come along to support us and get your GSPCA and pet stocking fillers.

A Christmas Gift that shows you care for only £5

Submitted by GSPCA on 09:47, 13th Dec, 2011 | 0

For only five pounds you can buy a gift certificate that will give one of the animals in our care a fantastic Christmas.

That’s right you will receive a certificate for yourself or someone you care for and that will enable us at the Shelter to give the animals in our care a very special Christmas.

We will ensure they have a present and a lovely meal and of course lots of very special hugs and cuddles, well for those domestic animals anyway as our hedgehogs and other wild animals may not want lots of hugs!!!

We are appealing for donations of bric-a-brac, tomdola prizes, raffle prizes and more importantly gifts for the Shelter animals for their Christmas presents.

On Saturday 17th December between 11am and 3.30pm we are holding a small Christmas Fayre at the Animal Shelter.  We need your help to fill the stalls so that we can give the animals in our care a wonderful Christmas through the money it will raise.
