In April the wonderful staff from The Travel Corporation joined the team at the GSPCA over 3 days.

This is the fifth year in a row team members from The Travel Corporation have helped at the GSPCA.

Sarah Gaudion, Demi Dawson, Steph Nickolls, Alice Falla, Jenny Ozanne & Monica Dekker all helped between the 11th and 13th April and each arrived at 9am on separate days where they had a short induction, quick picture and were set to work.

The team The Travel Corporation started each of the days helping the team at the GSPCA with the animals.

We are hugely grateful to The Travel Corporation as this takes the volunteering days total to 16 at the GSPCA. They are also part of our Build Partner sponsorship scheme which is a way businesses can donate to towards our new multi purpose animal welfare building and be part of our future and we also look forward to them helping later this month.

Before the group left after helping around the site they each had a tour behind the scenes and we gave them each a thank you certificate.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "Once again we are so grateful to The Travel Corporation for all of their wonderful support."

"The Travel Corporation staff were amazing and after their productive days help they were shown behind the scenes of the site and were each presented with a thank you certificate."

"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 or email me on stevejbyrne[email protected]."

"A huge thank you to the team from The Travel Corporation who really were such a fantastic help and thank you for being part of our Build Partner sponsorship scheme and we are really looking forward seeing them again in July.”

"The next volunteer induction evening for anyone interested in helping out is on Monday 2nd July at the GSPCA with a 630pm start."
