Michael & Carla Beaumont
Carla and I have sponsored Pam MacPuffin which is in memory of her parents Pam and Mac Drakefield. This follows on from the 2021 campaign when my company sponsored two goats, named Albert and Freda named after my paternal grandparents.
We are again very thankful to St Sampson’s High School whose art department teachers and students are painting our puffin, the scenario being the area around the Rousse Tower in times gone by. They produced some wonderful art with our goats, being very inventive in overcoming all the problems relating to the covid lockdown and social distancing.
Before relocating to Guernsey and meeting my wife Carla, I spent twenty years as a governor of an independent BESD school for boys aged from 5-12 and it is from that background that I originally decided to sponsor Autism Guernsey and their fun way of raising awareness and funds.
We wish Autism Guernsey every success in their campaign for 2023.

D.W. Lloyd Limited is a local business that specialises in boreholes, wells, ponds, irrigation and filtration.
We chose to sponsor a puffin for several reasons; one, because of the joy our children have had previously hunting for the cows, the donkeys and then the goats last year. Two, because we understand the importance of the work done by Autism Guernsey, the support they give to so many people and families on the Island and we wanted to be involved with raising funds and awareness for a charity we think is very worthwhile. Thirdly, we chose our church community, Shiloh to decorate and display the puffin. They hold café mornings for Mind Guernsey twice a week and the local community weekly, along with providing weekly support from the Foodbank and clothing bank to anyone who needs help.
Overall, we see this this as a great way of being involved in and giving back to our local community, which is very important to us, both personally and as a Company.
D.W. Lloyd Limited’s puffin is called Faith.

The cows were also a huge success and Emma ran a competition at her children’s primary school to design and name the cow that ELM was to sponsor.
At the next opportunity ELM sponsored a GOAT and cannot wait to see the Puffins in situ this year providing pleasure to families across the Island and ultimately raising lots of money for Autism Guernsey!

We chose Liberate Art Club as our artists as we have many friends in the LGBTQ community, plus Mummy wants me to learn to accept everyone as an individual and always be inclusive of everyone.
Liberate Art Club have been fantastic to work with, accommodating all our ideas and helping us really bring “Party Puffin” to life!
