Last month the wonderful staff from The Travel Corporation held a bake off to raise funds for the GSPCA.

The The Travel Corporation team are amazing supporters of the GSPCA giving up days in the office to help at the Shelter to being part of our Build Partner sponsorship scheme which helped build our multi purpose animal welfare building.

Recently we launched the Exclusive Build Partner sponsorship scheme to help towards our new and first Wildlife Hospital in the Channel Islands and to find out more please visit -

The bake off raised an amazing £200 and they also sold raffle tickets which has a top prize of £1000 and will be drawn at the GSPCA 1920s Ball on Saturday 22nd September. Raffle tickets are currently on sale at the GSPCA reception desk at £1 each and will be on sale at Le Friquet Garden Centre tomorrow with our volunteers.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "Once again we have to say thank you to The Travel Corporation for all of their wonderful support."

"The Travel Corporation had a bake off last month to raise funds for the many animals we have at the GSPCA and raised an amazing £200."

“From the pictures it looks like it was an amazing event and the cakes looked incredible.”

"We always love to hear from businesses that would like to help or support us and you can call 257261 for more details, check out our website for lots of ideas or email me on [email protected]."

"A huge thank you to the team from The Travel Corporation who really are fantastic and thank you for being part of our Build Partner sponsorship scheme and for all they do to help and support our work.”
