Last month a young man and a young lady interested in an animal care career spent a week experiencing work and helping out at the GSPCA.

Charles Allen and Bethany Shackcloth from Les Beaucamps High spent a four long shifts working with the team at the Animal Shelter in St Andrews.

Where as many of their fellow students were carrying out work experience 9am to 5pm, Charles and Bethany although only worked a 4 day week their shifts were much longer being from 8am in the morning until 6pm at night as the staff at the GSPCA have to work long days to care for the animals.

All of the team were really impressed with both of the young students and their hard work helping at the Shelter.

Yvonne Chauvel Senior Animal Care Assistant said "It was a real pleasure having Charles and Bethany helping at the GSPCA, they were amazing, lovely and so helpful."

"If they work like they have for us this in any job both will do really well in what they decide to do."

"We do hope they come back and volunteer and we want to say thank you to them both from all the team and animals for helping at the GSPCA."

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "Both Charles and Bethany have been fantastic helping the team and caring for the animals at the GSPCA."

"They both had to attend a volunteer induction evening before they started which we hold each month."

"So many of the team have said so many wonderful things about both of them as both applied themselves in every task whether it was helping with the rabbits to cleaning kennels."

"Les Beaucamps High and their parents can be very proud of two helpful, kind and hard working young students."

Charles said "I really enjoyed helping especially with the dogs."

Bethany said "My favourite area was the hospital where the rabbits and wildlife are."
