A huge thank you to Hemu from the GSPCA and St Andrews Floral Group for such an amazing Mural

Submitted by Steve on 14:41, 21st Jul, 2017 | 0

Over the last few weeks a young artist from Blanchelande School has been back and forth at the GSPCA to help provide a stunning back drop to our conservation area.

Hemu Khankashi from year 11 has helped provide a stunning mural on a wall facing the pond, picnic area and Poison Garden at the GSPCA.

The building has been a very plain beige for over 60 years and thanks to Hemu it has been brought to life with pictures of wildlife and plants adding to the amazing work that St Andrews Floral Group and so many others have helped with around the GSPCA grounds.

Phoebe's Story Challenge in aid of the GSPCA

Submitted by Steve on 14:50, 3rd Jul, 2017 | 0

The GSPCA are hugely grateful to Phoebe who has decided to raise funds to help the many animals at the GSPCA.

Phoebe will be writing lots of stories to raise money for GSPCA because she loves animals and really wants to help them.

Phoebe said "My name is Phoebe Copperwaite and I am 7 years old."

"Three of the things I love the most are reading, writing and animals."

"I spend hours at home writing stories and keep asking Mummy and Daddy to get them published so that I can sell them and use the money raised to help animals in need."
