The Golden Guernsey Goat Trail has now come to an end. The Goat Auction Event took place at St Pierre Park Hotel on the 16th September; and we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who made the Goat Trail such a success; and to everyone who showed their support.
The auction raised £65, 703, which far exceeded our expectations.

What is the
Guernsey Goat Trail?
The Guernsey Goat Trail is very much a community event and everyone can get involved.
It is made up of 52 individually painted full-sized goat sculptures created in the Philippines using photographs of Guernsey goats and decorated by local artists, clubs and community groups, schools, charities and day centres. The goats are made of fibreglass and have been placed on plinths around the island.
What's Going On?
The goats are on display at various locations around the Island of Guernsey and will remain in position until mid-August 2021. They will then be auctioned off in September to raise funds for Autism Guernsey and GALP to continue carrying out their vital work supporting individuals impacted by autism and adults with literacy difficulties.
Following the success of the Donkey Parade held in 2011 and the Cow Parade in 2012 by Guernsey Adult Literacy Project (Galp) Autism Guernsey, with the support of GALP, decided to organise a further parade with a strong local connection.
The Golden Guernsey Goat was chosen because it is an iconic breed unique to our island and very much part of our history.
Money raised from the sponsorship and auction of the Guernsey Goat sculptures will go to Autism Guernsey and GALP.
