On Good Friday class 1 of 2014 of Guernsey Student Police Officers undertook a 17 mile half island walk to raise money for the GSPCA.

They successfully completed this half an hour ahead of schedule having left Portelet at 9am and arriving at Liberation Monument in St Peter Port at almost exactly 4pm.

They would like to thank the Guernsey Civil Protection Volunteers who so willingly gave up their time to ensure their safety whilst on the roads, and also all the people who cheered them on and who have given so generously in order for them to successfully raise just over £650.00 for the GSPCA (exact figure to yet be confirmed).

They want to thank everyone for their support and the GSPCA would like to thank them for organising the event and raising a fantastic amount to help animals in Guernsey.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said 'What a fantastic group class 1 of 2014 of Guernsey Student Police Officers are.'

'They dressed up and walked over 17 miles to help raise funds for animals in Guernsey and we are so grateful to them.'

'Also we must thank everyone that sponsored them, helped them on the day and to those that waved them on.'

'It is great when we are approached by keen fund raisers who want to help raise funds for the Shelter and we always are happy to support those with their efforts.'

'It's the GSPCA Cupcake Week next week and we are hoping lot's of people will get involved making, baking and selling cake to help raise funds for the Shelter.'
