On Wednesday the GSPCA welcomed 8 Voluntourists from the Crystal Symphony.

The 7 ladies and one gentleman that helped out were Eleanor Teare, Jessica Madeca, Barb Jones, Eileen Kaminsky, Sara Macefield, Geoff Ford, Dani Ford & Holly Ford all of which greeted on their arrival by GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne just after 9am.

From Canada, the USA and the UK the group had a short induction and were then set to help the staff and care for the many animals at the GSPCA.

Each received a gift of a GSPCA t-shirt and a quick photo with Molly before they were set to work around the GSPCA.

The group helped clean out the birds and sweep out the rabbit pens, cleaned the cats and walked the dogs.

All of the group had a thoroughly enjoyable time and before they left were given a behind the scenes guided tour where they met the tortoise to baby hedgehogs and found out about the history of the Shelter and Guernsey with GSPCA Education and Welfare Officer Sarah Creasey.

The GSPCA has been running voluntourist days since 2014 and once again all had a fun morning.

Before the group left they were presented with a thank you certificate for all of their help.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "We really enjoyed having Eleanor, Jessica, Barb, Eileen, Sara, Geoff, Dani & Holly helping at the GSPCA from the Crystal Symphony on Wednesday."

"They all had a wonderful time and it was a pleasure to meet them all, and from all of the team at the GSPCA thank you to all 8 for their help with cleaning and caring for the animals."

"It was also lovely to meet and chat to Sarah Macefield who is a journalist and sub-editor and you may just see us featured in the Daily Telegraph or other publications."

"There are many ways to get involved at the GSPCA and we always love to hear from those wanting to volunteer at the Shelter."
