Online event BakeWithLuce Monday 11am raising funds for the animals at the GSPCA
Guernsey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (GSPCA)

One of our wonderful volunteers who helps each Monday and been very much missing walking the dogs and helping around the GSPCA has decided to help some much needed funds for the GSPCA. Check out this great online event this Monday - Lucy Radford tells us all about it “When I started bakewithluce it was never just about business. I simply wanted to try and live a more fulfilling and inspiring life. So where do you find that? in others of course... The team at the GSPCA are such an inspiration and for the past 6 months I've been volunteering. Every Monday 8am-10am I offer up my time and am usually found in the kennels. I take the woofers out for their morning stroll (and poop). It's a great start to my 'working' week and I'm missing it. However, it is not my time that is needed currently but money towards their running costs. This bakewithluce LIVE is a GSPCA special. We can still 'share the joy' and I'm hoping for just two pounds from anyone that joins. There are plenty of ways to donate more if you wish (found on the GSPCA website) but for this event please only two pounds. thank you xx” Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “With all our events postponed, boarding at an all time low and our charity shop closed raising funds for the animals in our care has NEVER been so important.” “We are missing all of our amazing volunteers and Lucy has been a real star over the last 6 months.” “To donate to Lucy’s Just Giving page please go to https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/bakewithluce and to check out her facebook page where this event will take place on Monday at 11am please go to https://www.facebook.com/bakewithluce/ .” “There many great ways and ideas to raise funds for the animals in our care on our website www.gspca.org.gg and to donate to our newly launched #GSPCACoronavirusAppeal please go to https://giving.gg/donate/event/5876/GSPCA-Coronavirus-Emergency-Appeal .” http://www.gspca.org.gg/blog/online-event-bakewithluce-monday-11am-raising-funds-animals-gspca

Please DO NOT visit the GSPCA with your entries at this time but if you have queries please call 01481 257261 or email us. Entries close midnight on the 15th April 2020 This competition was thought up by one of our team Emma Topley to help raise funds for the many animals in our care and will be judged by our amazing artist and award winning staff member Beckie Bailey. Emma Topley GSPCA Staff Member said “This is a great way we can all support the Shelter while many have to stay safe at home.” “We’ve got many rainbows around the GSPCA sharing the #StaySafe message and we wanted to run an event that everyone can get involved with young and old and we really don’t mind how artistic they are, you just need to include the rainbow and at least one animal which could be your pets or anything really, it is just a bit of fun.” Beckie Bailey GSPCA Staff Member said “I’m really looking forward seeing all the entries with rainbows and animals.” “This is a great way to get all the family involved and you can enter as many entries as you like but it is £5 minimum entry donation and every penny will help the many animals in our care and our 24 hour work.” Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager “What a great competition Emma has created to raise funds and spread the #StaySafe #GuernseyTogether and #ShareTheRainbow message.” “We are really missing all the events we would be attending and organising which not only raise essential funds, but also show case and promote our work.” “Earlier this week we launched our #GSPCACoronavirusCrisisAppeal and we have had an incredible response and can’t thank everyone enough that has donated so far, but with no events and only one boarding cat in our care we are doing all we can to raise the £2000 needed to run the Shelter each day.” “We battle on with our essential work rescuing animals, rehabilitating wildlife and so much more but without public support we cannot achieve so much.” “Having children at home myself and other family members indoors this is a great way to have a bit of show and also help raise funds for the animals in our care with some great prizes for the winner and runner up in each category.” "On a trip out with the children yesterday on our bikes for our exercise time we counted an amaing 187 rainbows and we are hoping our competition wil help add many more around the islands or from anywhere across the world." “If you aren’t feeling arty then you can still donate to our #GSPCACoronavirusCrisisAppeal by calling 01481 257261 or online https://giving.gg/donate/event/5876/GSPCA-Coronavirus-Emergency-Appeal .” “Good luck one and all and we can’t wait to see your entries.” In line with States of Guernsey advice please DO NOT visit the GSPCA if you are over 65, have an underlying health condition or have any symptoms of Coronavirus and only visit us if your visit is essential but before doing so please call us on 01481 257261 or email admin@gspca.org.gg before your trip to the GSPCA to see if we can help without you coming to the Shelter.
