In 2021 Autism Guernsey and the Guernsey Adult Literacy Project organised the Goat Trail which was extremely successful and raised over £80,000 for the charities.

Autism Guernsey and the GSPCA are now organising a further parade for 2023 – the Puffin Parade.

When deciding on what kind of statue to use for this event, it was agreed that we would keep to the theme of animals and birds synonymous with the Bailiwick.  Therefore it was agreed that we would use Puffins, although larger than their normal size.

2023 Autism Guernsey and the GSPCA will bring the Puffin Parade to Guernsey – Could you sponsor and paint a puffin?

Submitted by Steve on 15:25, 28th Jan, 2022 | 0

2021 Guernsey saw the Guernsey Goat Trail which was hugely popular and brought smiles and fun to many islanders and visitors.

Autism Guernsey and the GSPCA are delighted to be working together to bring a Puffin Parade to Guernsey in 2023.

Both charities are looking for businesses to sponsor a puffin and artists to decorate them.  This is a real community project and we invite groups, schools, individuals and professional artists to join in this initiative and paint a puffin.
