We would like to thank the Lions Club of Guernsey and all involved for another well run and great Donkey Derby.

GSPCA staff and volunteers Steve Byrne, Hayley James, Joseph Fox and Ellie Fox spent Saturday afternoon in Saumarez Park raising funds for the animals in Guernsey.

The stall was set up in the sunshine and the weather managed to hold for the afternoon where we raised in excess of £500.

We would like to thank everyone involved, helped and supported what was a lovely afternoon.
