Calling all animal lovers

A SPECIALIST charity which helps the elderly and vulnerable care for their pets is appealing for volunteers.

The Cinnamon Trust is looking for people willing to give up their time to help a pet owner in Stoke-by-Clare with walking her dog.

Sally Collins, from the charity, said the organisation - which supports the terminally ill and elderly in taking care of all types of pets across the county - had been looking for help in this particular case for a number of months.

“We have been trying desperately to find someone to walk this dog since July,” she said.

“People only need to spare an hour to help and the owners are incredibly grateful.”

Anyone who would like to volunteer should contact Mrs Collins on 01736 758707 or email
