Amazing People Doing Amazing Things for Animals in Guernsey – Results of the Staff Member & Volunteer of Summer 2013
The GSPCA couldn’t carry out saving, rescuing and caring for the thousands of animals that come through the doors every year without the support of the staff and volunteers that work tirelessly every day and night.
To recognise the team for the first time at the GSPCA we have been asking for nominations to recognise the staff and volunteers for their dedication, hard work and outstanding effort.
Nominations were accepted both in house, online and via the post and we received an overwhelming number of wonderful comments for five staff in particular and fifteen volunteers.
Each of these individuals have been recognised as the Staff Member or Volunteer of Summer 2013 with a Certificate and small gift.
Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said ‘It was so heart warming with all the wonderful comments for the team.’
‘We do appreciate every volunteer and staff member, but this was the first time we gave an opportunity for others to put names forward to be recognised for outstanding work and commitment.’
‘The five staff Geoff, Helen, Yvonne, Sheryl and Tony are some of the longest serving team members we have at the Shelter and it was fantastic to see that even after years of service their dedication is recognised by those that use our services and their colleagues.’
‘What can I say about our volunteers, we have through a year over 150 helping in one way or other and every single one is a star in their own right and we really do appreciate them all.’
‘The two Sue’s, Sarah, Darren, Jackie, Corinne, Jenny, Bridget, Dave, Matt, Jen, the two Anna’s, Paul and Natalie are just a few of the amazing individuals that we have volunteer at the Shelter and are those that have been nominated by others for everything that they do to help animals, fund raise, night warden, dress as a giant mascot, walk dogs, cuddle cats, clean out and generally help ensure that the GSPCA has the support that it needs to carry out its work 24 hours a day 7 days a week.’
‘Reading the comments and nominations was an extremely emotional thing to do as the comments of such wonderful individuals was extremely humbling.’
‘A thank you must go out to everyone involved in helping animals in Guernsey and if you wish to nominate a staff member or volunteer then the next quarter for nominations is now open and you can vote by emailing me, writing in to the Shelter or leaving a message at reception.’
