Le Friquet Proudly Support GSPCA in 20171st June 2017
Le Friquet Home of Garden & Living have announced that they will be donating 1% of their pet department sales to support their chosen charity, the GSPCA, throughout 2017 and are asking customers for their help to back this initiative.
The Castel based garden centre, who are supporting the charity for the 2nd year running, are putting a number of initiatives into action this year in order to help raise awareness of the GSPCA’s excellent work, as well as raise much needed funds to ensure the health and well-being of the animals they look after.
Throughout the year, Le Friquet are donating pet food every month as well as bedding and on-going conservation work funding to the local animal shelter in St Andrews. They have also been housing collection tubs and food donation bins in store so that customers are able to contribute and get involved.
A key event in the calendar will be the annual ‘Le Friquet Family Fun Day’, which will be co-hosted by the GSPCA this year. The event, which will take place on Saturday, 22nd July from 11am – 4pm, will include a barbecue, face painters, bouncy castles, music and planting classes.
‘We’re thrilled to be supporting the GSPCA again,’ said Le Friquet Manager, James Robin. ‘The GSPCA work tirelessly 365 days a year to carry out their important rescue work and we feel it’s a really crucial cause to support and fund. We kindly ask all of our customers to support us in our mission!’
Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said: ‘The GSPCA are hugely grateful to the support of the Le Friquet Garden Centre. We are also very excited that the GSPCA will be helping provide pet care sheets for Le Friquet’s pet department staff to use and hand out, as well as a pre-homing questionnaire for those interested in homing a new pet’.
‘It is fantastic to be working with Le Friquet, who last year helped in many ways, from equipment and care for Olivia the loggerhead turtle, to donations of pet food. We want to say a huge thank you for their wonderful support ‘.
Le Friquet Pet Department also work closely with Isabelle Vets, offering those who purchase selected pets from the centre with a free health check. Isabelle Vets also visit the Pet Department on a fortnightly basis to check the health and well being of all the animals on-site.
