Our monthly coffee morning is on Wednesday, January 10th, 10:30am at St Michael’s in aid of The Cinnamon Trust –
A national network of over 15,000 community service volunteers has been established to provide practical help when any aspect of day to day care poses a problem – for example, walking the dog for a housebound owner.
A national fostering service is provided for pets whose owners face a spell in hospital – volunteers take pets into their own homes and supply love and care in abundance until owner and pet can be reunited.
The Cinnamon Trust also provides long term care for pets whose owners have died or moved to residential accommodation which will not accept pets. Arrangements are made between owners and the Trust well in advance, so owners do have peace of mind in the knowledge that their beloved companion will have a safe and happy future.
When a pet is in the Trust’s care either short term or long term because the owner is in care or in hospital, the owner is kept in touch with visits, if possible, or regular photos and letters. (www.cinnamon.org.uk)
