Help needed for people and pets..! Cinnamon Trust

The Cinnamon Trust is the national charity for the elderly and terminally ill and their pets.  We seek to keep owner and pet together for as long as possible with the help of a national network of volunteers who assist when day to day care poses a problem.

We have a resident of Bergh Apton asking for our support to walk their lovely dog, but not enough local volunteers to be able to help them

Cinnamon Trusts aim is to relieve the owners of any worry concerning the welfare of their pets both during and after their own lifetime making us unique amongst charities.

All volunteers help in the ways that are most appropriate to them.  Volunteers take it in turn to visit housebound owners to take their dogs for walks, they help with cat care, volunteers foster pets as one of their family when owners face a spell in hospital, they take pets to the vet, even clean the budgie’s cage out.

For further information contact Sally direct on 01736 758707 or email

sallycollins@cinnamon.org.uk .

The volunteers can gain access to our volunteer page on our website or www.cinnamon.org.uk or by emailing us at volunteer@cinnamon.org.uk

Any help you are able to give will be very gratefully accepted.

A huge thank you to the Bergh Apton elves that got together a Christmas parcel for us.

In some ways this has been a difficult year, and yet it has also bought moments such as these.
Moments that drive home how lucky we are to live in such a loving and supportive community.
Thank you and Happy Christmas one and all.
