This Saturday the 24th August the GSPCA will be collecting around Guernsey for our annual Flag Day.

We have filled many of the locations but we are still appealing for volunteers to help with the collecting. 

Sarah Ozanne Organisor of this years Flag Day said 'Thank you to all of the volunteers that have put their names to help so far but we really need another dozen volunteers to help fill the gaps.'

'Herm Kiosk we are trying to get a good turn out especially volunteers that don't mind dressing as Giant Animal Mascots.'

'Please, please let me know as soon as you can if you can help.'

The locations that we are currently arranging are -

  • Alliance
  • Aladdins Cave
  • Beau Sejour
  • Castle Cornet
  • Marks and Spencers in St Peter Port
  • The Pet Cabin
  • Waitrose - Rohais
  • Waitrose - Admiral Park
  • Friquet Garden Centre
  • Herm Kiosk
  • Forest Stores
  • Bus Terminus
  • Market Square

We are looking for volunteers to help with the 2 hour shifts in these locations from 10am until 6pm.  If you can help please contact Sarah Ozanne at the Shelter by emailing [email protected] or call 01481 257261.

Last year we raised over £3000 thanks to all of the volunteers that helped.

Also 31st August we are also looking for volunteers to help collect at the following -

  • Marks and Spencers - L'Ilset
