Tenth Animal Welfare Seafront Sunday 12th September 2021
Guernsey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (GSPCA)

Thanks once again to the #GuernseyTogether spirit the 2021 Animal Welfare Seafront Sunday will be the tenth and takes place on Sunday 12th September. We had planned to hold it in May but as with the reasons given for the Liberation Day celebration alterations the GSPCA have taken the decision to move from May to September. On the 12th September 2021 10am to 4pm the GSPCA will once again be organising a day to celebrate the animals in Guernsey and all the wonderful work that is done to care for them. We are extremely grateful to all those that made last 9 years such great days and we are hoping this years will be bigger and better. There will be stalls and fun for all the family - all with an animal theme. Fancy dress to mascot 5-a-side football, children's games to lots of food, a fun dog show, arts and crafts to charity stalls, some of the GSPCA animals looking for homes, entertainment and so much more........ This years Giant Animal Mascot event is a 5-a-side football match and can be entered as an individual or enter in the team event. All proceeds for this years race will help animals in Guernsey at the GSPCA so you can help support a great local charity, whilst having a lot of fun. Chose your Giant Animal Mascot Suit on the day or bring your own, details and sign up below...... There are lots of people that we would like to thank for their help and support to make this an amazing day out for all the family and listed below are just a few of them. The day starts from 10am and will take place along the Sea Front in St Peter Port and there are a variety of events and activities through the day.

Once again we will be holding a Giant Animal Mascot event but this year there are a big twist. This is open to mascots and individuals prepared to dress as an animal and play a fun football game with a rather over sized ball. We are asking businesses, pubs, individuals or anyone as a team of 5 or an individual and we can make extra teams on the day. Don't worry about what to wear we will provide the Giant Animal Mascot suit and have over 70 available. To join in the our giant animal 5-a-side football game in Guernsey we are asking you to raise funds for the Shelter, ideally a minimum of £22 per person or £100 for a team of 5. All the money raised will go towards helping animals in Guernsey. For businesses wanting to join in we will feature in our next newsletter, on our website and you can put a banner up on the day. We are welcoming children to dress up in their own suits and also have a game through the day for a donation.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “We are delighted to announce that we will indeed be holding our GSPCA Animal Welfare Seafront Sunday in 2021 on the 12th September.” "We really can't believe that we will be holding our 10th Animal welfare Seafront Sunday, a day that is really special in the GSPCA calendar." “We really want to hear from those wanting to getting involved and help make this a fantastic and unique day celebrating animals in Guernsey.” "Every day is a real challenge to raise the funds required to run the Shelter and we cannot thank those that have supported us during these difficult days." Lorna Chadwick GSPCA Animal Welfare Manager said “We are so thankful that we can hold our GSPCA Animal Welfare Seafront Sunday again this year.” “We are now getting in touch with the stall holders that were booked in for the event which has moved from may to September and we want to hear from those wanting to get involved.” “We are putting plans together and really want to hear from anyone wanting to get involved or with great ideas to help raise funds, promote the work of the GSPCA and celebrate animals in Guernsey.” Steve continued “This will be our 10th Animal Welfare Seafront Sunday and we want it to be a great day to celebrate the freedoms both we and our animals enjoy here in Guernsey.” "Sadly we have moved the date from May to September for the same reasons Liberation Day has changed their plans." “We have launched the Seafront Sunday web page and any stall holders, buskers, entertainers that want to get involved please do email steve@gspca.org.gg , lorna@gspca.org.gg or call 01481 257261.” “With running costs of £2000 a day raising the funds to keep the Shelter going is a daily challenge and without kind supporters we could not carry out our around the clock work.” “During the lock down we launched our #GSPCACoronavirusCrisisAppeal .” “We have had some amazing donations towards this much needed appeal and if you would like to donate you can do so by calling 01481 257261, by post or online via our web page https://giving.gg/donate/event/5876/GSPCA-Coronavirus-Emergency-Appeal .” “Another great way to supporting is by donating each month and to find out details please visit this web page http://www.gspca.org.gg/sites/default/files/Angel%20sponsor%20form%20special%202018%20new.pdf .” “Without your support the GSPCA couldn’t achieve so much caring and helping over 3000 animals every year.” "Without the amazing public support we could not achieve so much and from supporting our #GSPCACoronavirusCrisisAppeal to our Animal Welfare Seafront Sunday from us all at the GSPCA and all for the animals thank you." "We are asking for teams or individuals to sign up to dress as a giant animal or character to play a fun 5-a-side football game." "All the funds raised will help animals in Guernsey." "It's not a normal game as there are lots of surprises." "All we ask is a minimum donation of £22 per player or £100 a team of 5, we provide the costume and the fun starts at 2pm on the 12th September." "Game lengths will depend on numbers and our very own Bernard the GSPCA dog will be there." "Please do get in touch for more information or check out the details online." For any questions please call 01481 257261 or contact stevejbyrne@gspca.org.gg or lorna@gspca.org.gg Volunteer If you, your group, business or school would like to volunteer and help on the day please email stevejbyrne@gspca.org.gg Keep an eye on this page as we update it with more information. http://www.gspca.org.gg/page/animal-welfare-sea-front-sunday
