With winter drawing in fast the GSPCA wanted to extend a huge thanks to the Skipton Community Fund for an amazing donation of £1500 earlier this year for much needed emergency equipment.

With 16 buildings on site at the GSPCA we have many rooms and areas with animals, many of which arrive sick or injured and if we ever had a heating fault or power cut could be put those sick or young at risk, but thanks to the Skipton Community Fund we now have 15 portable gas heaters and bottles which can now be used if ever we had a real emergency and loss of heat in essential areas.

We must also say a huge thanks to Guernsey Gas who provided a very kind discount to enable us to use the £1500 donated by the Skipton Community Fund to purchase the 15 heaters and bottles of gas provided.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “We cannot thank Skipton Community Fund and Guernsey Gas enough for enabling us to purchase 15 emergency portable gas heaters.”

“We are always trying to plan for any emergency and these heaters will be essential if ever we lose heat in an area and it can’t be fixed or resolved quickly.”

“With 16 buildings on site, over 500 animals in our care we need to not only raise £2000 a day to run the GSPCA, we also have to fund raise for the funds needed to buy essential equipment and items to carry out the 24/7 work we do 365 days a year.”

“We have many wishes and plans and you can see many of those by visiting .”

“Our BIGGEST wish of them all is the much needed Wildlife Hospital and from making a donation to Buying a Brick there are many ways to support this much needed facility.”

“If you would like to discuss donating to a specific project or item please do get in touch as we need items from 90p steel bowls to new buildings, for the dogs to the wildlife.”

“To find out more or discuss how you or your group or business could support the GSPCA you can pop in to the Shelter in St Andrews, call 01481 257261 or email me [email protected] as we love chatting to those that wish to support our vital work.”

“A huge thank you to Skipton Community Fund for their amazing donation of £1500 and to Guernsey Gas for their help and support for these much needed items.”
