Organising Committee needed!
Actionaid Guernsey Support Group
We have a fundraising target of £100,000 in 2017 to rebuild a school in Nepal damaged by the 2015 earthquakes.
As well as many regular small events, we have a huge exciting event planned that is new to Guernsey. We're looking for enthusiastic people looking for a rewarding volunteering commitment to form an organising committee between now and September.
Although not essential, as the more hands on deck the better, the specific skills that we need to get this event off the ground are project management, marketing, communications, previous experience of organising large community events, and contacts in athletics groups, the local music scene, and corporate companies who may be interested in sponsoring a new event for Guernsey.
For more information, and to register interest in the role, please email Natalie at email@example.com

Help raise funds for our 144th Anniversary during the GSPCA Purple Week 10th to 17th February
Guernsey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (GSPCA)
The GSPCA was founded in 1873 and this February to help celebrate 144 years caring for animals in Guernsey we are asking for your help.
There are many ways you, your school, group, work place, business can help celebrate.
The GSPCA week starts 10th February and celebrations will carry on until the 17th with our anniversary being Valentines Day the 14th February.
Ideas to get involved.......
Why not wear purple for the day? The GSPCA logo is purple and we are encouraging people to wear purple for a day or more during this week from purple ties to GSPCA wrist bands, pin badges, or maybe you have a better idea?
A Mufti or Dress Down Day is a great and fun way to raise funds to help animals in Guernsey and celebrate our 144th anniversary.
How about a 'Take Your Dog to Work Day' although normally this is celebrated in the summer why not hold a day at your work place early.
Maybe you would like a tombola set for your work place? We can arrange a ticketed tombola with prizes to help raise funds for the animals in our care.
Dress as an animal for the day? Its fun and a great way to celebrate the fact that the GSPCA help 1000's of animals and birds every year.
FACT - Did you know the Shelter has cared for two lion cubs, two sea turtles and two monkeys in previous years and currently has a seal pup on site?

There are many ways you can join the GSPCA Purple Week - Celebrating 144 years Caring for Animals in Guernsey between Friday 10th February and Friday 17th February.
Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "In 2017 the GSPCA will have been helping animals in Guernsey for 144 years and we are asking animal lovers to help join in and celebrate with us."
'We are looking at holding a number of events during the week and if anyone has any other ideas please let us know.'
"It costs over £600,000 a year to help care for the 1000's of animals and birds we have through our doors, provide the 24 hour 7 day a week emergency service for animals, the welfare work, dog training, education and more and we are appealing for people, schools and businesses to get involved to celebrate the wonderful work we have done and have to do for the future."
"With ever rising costs we hope that Guernsey will wear purple for animals and join in our birthday fun in February."
"Our biggest wish and project we are hoping to acheive is renewing all 42 kennel floors which will cost in excess of £25,000 as well as raising the much needed funds to run the Shelter 24/7 and if you would like to support us please give us a call on 257261 or email us at the GSPCA."
"We are looking at holding a number events through February and details will be on our website."
