Giant Animal Mascot It's a Knock Out for the GSPCA
Once again we will be holding a Giant Animal Mascot Race but this year there are a few twists.
This is open to mascots and individuals prepared to dress as an animal.
We are asking businesses, pubs, individuals or anyone as a team of 4 or an individual.
Don't worry about what to wear we will provide the Giant Animal Mascot suit and have over 70 available.
To join in the team race which will be a little like 'It's A Knockout' we are asking you to raise funds for the Shelter (ideally a minimum £25 per person) for a team or the same if you would like to race individually..
All the money raised will go towards helping animals in Guernsey.
There is no cost but we do ask you raise sponsorship (ideally £25 per person minimum) which will cover the cost of the animal outfit, an advert in our Springand Summer Newsletter, allow you to put a banner up on the day and be part of a fun fund raising event.
We are looking to have a Fancy Dress Childrens Race and if you know of anyone that would like to take part please do get in touch.
We would also love to hear from schools that may like to get involved.
