On Saturday Manager Mr Ian Cuthbertson and a team of the Co-op Longstore Locale staff walked in aid of GSPCA.
The 2014 ‘Co-op 2 Co-op’ walk took 8 hours and the staff taking part paid a visit to every Co-op retail outlet in Guernsey, some 15 miles in all.
Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager asked Co-op Longstore Locale Manager Mr Ian Cuthbertson how it all went and here is his reply “It all went very well thanks, we’d finished by 16:00 hrs, some 8 hours walking from shop to shop.”
“Got a little wet in St Martins mid morning, but otherwise it was perfect walking conditions.”
“People were stopping and donating as they drove past, it was a great day.”
“We have raised £1,100 so far, but we hope to raise £1500 in total.”
“We have left the buckets in the shop for another couple of weeks, so it might be more to be honest.”
“Well done team, great effort.”
Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “We are extremely grateful from the GSPCA to all of the team from the Co-op Longstore Locale store that took part in the 15 mile ‘Co-op 2 Co-op’ walk on Saturday and to all that donated towards their fantastic achievement.”
“We have nearly 300 animals in our care and have helped well over 2000 already this year at the GSPCA and every penny really does help make a difference.”
“We love to hear from anyone that would like to help raise funds for the animals at the GSPCA and please do get in touch if you would like to help or you can find out lots of details on our web site.”
